Rogge Dunn Group partner Joshua Iacuone was recently quoted in a Law.com article covering the wrongful termination lawsuit filed by Amy Reggio against her former employer, Tekin & Associates. Iacuone is the counsel for Plaintiff Amy Reggio.
Regio sued Tekin & Associates in April 2020 for wrongful termination after her boss allegedly fired her for refusing to break the law by violating a local stay-at-home order and working in the office amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the time, Dallas County had a stay-at-home order, and non-compliance could have resulted in a misdemeanor charge, a $1,000 fine, and up to 180 days in jail. In the Law.com article, Iacuone said Reggio’s husband and young son both have asthma. “People were trying to figure things out and do what was right for their families, their employers, their clients,” Iacuone said in the article. “I think it was an opportunity for people to show their work and pass the do-the-right-thing test.
