A former employee of Morgan’s Foods has filed suit, claiming that the company wrongfully fired him after he filed for benefits from worker’s compensation.
According to the suit filed on April 14 in Illinois’ Madison County Circuit Court, Tommy A. Loftis was working for Morgan’s Foods on June 20 when he suffered personal injuries in an accident the suit did not specify.
Loftis claims his injuries caused him to become temporarily disabled and therefore unable to perform his duties. The suit says he filed for worker’s comp benefits, but was fired in retaliation on December 12.
Loftis claims his firing caused him lost wages, lost benefits, emotional distress, pain, and suffering.
Loftis seeks damages exceeding $100,000, plus costs, from the two-count suit.
