Settlement awarded in on-the-job-toilet case

Oregon – A Portland jury has awarded two men a settlement in a case in which they were purportedly terminated after complaining about not having access to an on-the-job-toilet. As reported by The Oregonian, Douglas Eki and Xerxes “Jason” Doctolero were awarded $332,000 in damages in the case.
As noted in the report, the men, who worked for Menzies Aviation, performing mechanical work at Portland International Airport, filed a complaint with the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division after being denied proper access to restroom facilities by their employer. The company subsequently terminated their employment, which the jury found to be an act of retaliation stemming from their OSHA complaint.
Doctolero is quoted in the report as stating of the matter, “Hopefully no one will have to suffer again what I’ve been through.”
