Wrongful Termination Suit Brought against Four Mining and Energy Companies

A lawsuit filed in Wyoming Circuit Court on April 2 sees a Mercer County man claim wrongful termination against four mining and energy companies; Justice Highway Mining Inc., Dynamic Energy, Inc., Bluestone Industries, Inc., and EIN Energy, LLC. Ricky M. Varney has filed the suit on the grounds that he was wrongfully terminated after refusing to work in unsafe conditions. Varney alleges that his employment was terminated in January 2017, when he declined to work on a bench where an inadequate warning was given to employees about the risk of being struck by flyrock. Varney also claims that the mining and energy companies in question ordered equipment which was unsuitable and unsafe for use, despite his having advised them this would be the case.

Claiming that the four companies ignored the employee’s reports regarding safety, and seeks trial by jury, reinstatement of his previous position, punitive damages, pre-judgment, and post-judgment interest, injunctive relief, attorney fees, court fees, and any other relief deemed just or equitable by the court.
