According to the lawsuit, Hernandez was employed by ET Superior Services when she allegedly suffered a work-related injury on June 22. She claims the defendant then notified her on June 24 that she was terminated from her employment with them. She claims the defendant failed to provide any legitimate basis for discharging her from her employment. Hernandez alleges she was fired in retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim.

Hernandez seeks an amount in excess of $75,000 for lost wages, benefits, raises and promotions, costs associated with securing subsequent employment and for humiliation and mental anguish.
