Client, who was an on-site employee of a private company, was fired after she complained about the living conditions of the residence that was provided to her, believing she became ill from living on-site, a premises liability claim. At trial, we argued that the employer was unlawfully trying to get her to waive liability for subjecting her to the poor conditions leading to her illness. After she refused to waive liability against them, the employer retaliated against her by firing her and displacing her from her home. The Colorado Springs jury found that she was wrongfully discharged in violation of public policy.
