Staffmark Investment LLC, a temporary staffing agency, has recently hired attorney Terry P. Finnerty of Dinsmore & Shohl to represent them in a pending lawsuit. The case, currently under the docket number 23CV0233, involves a former employee of Wendy's Old Fashion Hamburgers who claims she was injured on the job due to negligence on the part of Staffmark. The plaintiff, Tiffany Davis, is seeking damages from both Staffmark and the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation, claiming that they failed to provide her with adequate training and safety equipment.
According to court documents, Davis was assigned to work at a Wendy's location in Ohio by Staffmark. While working there, she claims she slipped on a wet floor and injured her back, resulting in medical bills and lost wages. She alleges that Staffmark and the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation were responsible for her injuries due to their failure to properly train her and provide her with necessary safety equipment.
In response to the lawsuit, Staffmark has hired Finnerty to represent them in court. Finnerty has a history of defending clients in employment-related cases and has been recognized as a "Rising Star" by Ohio Super Lawyers. Staffmark has not yet released a statement regarding the pending litigation.
The case is currently ongoing, with a pre-trial hearing scheduled for later this year. It remains to be seen how the court will rule in this case and what implications it may have for the temporary staffing industry as a whole.
This news comes at a time when many businesses are looking to hire more employees due to an increase in demand with the spread of coronavirus. Temporary staffing agencies like Staffmark have seen an uptick in business as companies seek out additional workers to keep up with increased demand. However, this also means that there is a greater potential for workplace injuries and accidents, which could lead to more legal cases like the one involving Staffmark.
