HOUSTON — A former Camin Cargo inspector claims he was denied accommodations and terminated due to his disabilities. 

Kenneth Richards filed a complaint March 8 in the Harris County District Court against Camin Cargo Control Inc., alleging disability discrimination. 

Richards began working for Camin Cargo in November of 2008 as a senior inspector of chemical tanks, ships and barges. In 2013, he suffered from cancer, loss of a kidney and a portion of his lung capacity. He alleges that in April of 2019, a new supervisor took away his accommodations that he had been granted since 2014 due to his disabilities. Richards alleges he was offered to switch to a lower position and take a pay cut and was placed on involuntary leave and terminated. 

Richards seeks monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million, trial by jury interest and all other just relief. He is represented by David Holmes of The Law Offices of David C. Holmes in Houston.
