Landry’s restaurant files petition to arbitrate wrongful termination suit
Houston, Texas-based restaurant chain Landry’s Inc. has filed a plea of abatement on June 25, 2015 to abate a wrongful termination claim filed by Houston resident and former Landry’s employee Joseph Hoffman on April 9, 2015 in Jefferson County District Court, which, according to Hoffman, was a retaliatory action for a workers’ compensation benefit claim he filed in April 2014, court records showed.
According to the filed plea of abatement, the lawsuit should be abated due to the right of arbitration set out in the contract between the employer and the employee when the employee first accepted the job with his employer.
