A Grayson County resident has sued his employer, alleging wrongful job termination.

Ronald David Madison filed a lawsuit March 30 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas against CBRE of Dallas, alleging discrimination in the loss of his job.

According to the complaint, CBRE functions as facilities management contractor for Baylor Medical Center in McKinney, and Madison was hired in July 2012 and never received any warnings or written discipline. Occasionally, he noticed items missing from the work site, such as a volt meter in November 2013 and a leaf blower in June 2014, the suit states.

The lawsuit says Madison reported all such incidents to his supervisor, who advised him to keep a watchful eye as many vendors, construction workers and other members of the public used the area. On July 14, 2014, the suit says, Madison was questioned and then placed on paid leave two days later, ostensibly while the company investigated the incidents.

Madison was terminated July 21, 2014, the suit states, and he was told it was due to discrepancies in his report when compared to that of others. The lawsuit alleges there was no evidence presented of Madison committing theft and he was given no discipline or other recourse for improvement.

The plaintiff contends the defendant discriminated against him and he cites unlawful employment practices

Madison seeks: compensation for front and back pay; liquidated and punitive damages; pre- and post-judgment interest; attorney fees; expenses and costs. He is represented by attorney Ronald Huff of Sherman.

Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas case number: 4:15-cv-00222.
