Court docs slam project management company for firing diabetic worker, question results of 'random' alcohol test

By John Suayan | Oct 5, 2018

HOUSTON – A Baytown man alleges that SNC Lavalin Engineers & Constructors Inc. terminated him after randomly conducting an alcohol test he asserts returned dubious results.

Court papers filed on Oct. 3 in the Harris County 215th District Court claim Kirk Dillard was administered the test in response to his concerns about SNC-Lavalin’s “potentially fraudulent” billing practice.

Dillard yielded inconsistent results “in a short period of time with no explanation,” to which the lawsuit attributes to a faulty breathalyzer. According to the complaint, the plaintiff’s diabetes also factored into him failing the test.

SNC-Lavalin purportedly denied Dillard’s request for an alternative test considering his disability. He asserts that the test was not “consistent with a business necessity.”

Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages.

He is represented by David J. Manley of Houston.
