A former Galveston, Texas, restaurant dishwasher was injured on the job when a glass shattered in his hand when he was emptying a dishwasher. Shortly thereafter, he was terminated. He sued his former employer for negligence and wrongful termination, alleging the employer failed to provide gloves for use to prevent such injuries and then terminated him because he sustained an injury.
The plaintiff seeks trial by jury and monetary damages up to a million dollars. Philip Gonzales "Dishwasher alleges Olympia at Pier 21 wrongfully terminated him" setexasrecord.com (Dec. 26, 2017).
