Joshua Iacuone on NBC DFW: Iacuone and Dunn Represent Employee Fired For COVID-19 Shelter-In-Place Compliance

Rogge Dunn Group Firm Partners Joshua Iacuone and Rogge Dunn are representing a recently fired employee of a Frisco-based real estate development and investment company. Iacuone and Dunn’s client filed a lawsuit alleging wrongful discharge and violations of state policy by her boss. She is seeking $1 million from Tekin and Associates LLC.

The client, Amy Reggio, was fired from Tekin and Associates LLC after requesting to work remotely to comply with Dallas County’s shelter-in-place orders. Reggio claims that her boss responded to her request by saying the idea “did not work for him” and wasn’t allowed. She then asked her boss to stop insisting she come into work and break the law “under the threat of termination.” Shortly after sending that email, Reggio says she was fired.

“We are in unprecedented times and the last concern any of us should have is that our employer will flatly refuse to concede that health concerns and complying with the law are viable reasons to work remotely,” Iacuone said in a statement.

NBC DFW interviewed Iacuone in a news segment regarding the wrongful discharge lawsuit.

“They invest money into projects. In no way, shape, or form are they an essential business,” Iacuone said. He then stated that “literally minutes after” Reggio sent an email to her boss saying she didn’t want to face criminal repercussions for not complying with the shelter-in-place orders, she was fired. “And that’s against the law,” Iacuone said.
