Former employee accuses Fresno County company of violating workers compensation law

By Louie Torres | Jan 16, 2018

FRESNO — A former employee is suing a Fresno County company, alleging discrimination, retaliation, violation of human rights, violation of state law, violation of workers compensation acts and wrongful termination.

Matthew Seeley filed a complaint Dec. 21 in Fresno County Superior Court against Manco Abbott Inc., and Does 1 through 20, alleging they refused to accommodate the plaintiff's disability during his employment.

According to the complaint, Seeley worked for Manco Abbott from Oct. 5, 2011, until he was terminated Sept. 17, 2017. The suit says Seeley was terminated for requesting work restrictions due to an injured right hand and right wrist. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed and refused to accommodate Seeley's request to properly address his health condition and, instead, terminated his employment as retaliation.

Seeley seeks trial by jury, general damages that exceed the jurisdictional limits of the court, special damages, exemplary and punitive damages, interest, reinstatement, court costs and all further relief the court grants. He is represented by attorney Shelley G. Bryant of Bryant Whitten LLP in Fresno.
