Wrongful Termination Suit Wins $250,000

Ray Barker, a former employee at Genesee County Community Action Resource
Department, claimed he was wrongfully terminated after reporting concerns to his
employer the company was distributing asbestos in low-income housing. Barker told
a court the company was installing insulation in a free program for needy families but
was potentially distributing the deadly fibers in the process. “After Barker reportedly
discovered a mine in Montana produced asbestos, he realized the same type of
material was in the insulation he installed in the homes. He alleges the company that fired him changed their rules to solve the problem shortly after he was let go.” Barker filed a wrongful termination suit against the company and won a $250,000 settlement this week, according to a news source.
