A lawsuit filed by Risman & Risman, P.C. in the Southern District of New York has been featured in the New York Post. The complaint alleges that our client, a truck driver, discovered mice in his truck while delivering food to McDonald’s restaurants. He alleges he reported this to his employer but was instructed to proceed with the deliveries. Our client alleges he refused, citing health and safety concerns, which he believed made the delivery illegal. Following his refusal, our client faced adverse employment actions, including suspension and eventual termination, which he alleges were retaliatory.
The article further highlights the seriousness of these allegations, focusing on the potential health risks involved in delivering contaminated food and the implications for public safety. In our quote to the paper, we underscored the importance of adhering to health and safety standards and the crucial role of employees in upholding these standards.
