A former Washington County Roads Department employee who was injured on the job in 1992 has filed a lawsuit that alleges the county violated an agreement by firing him last year.
In the suit, filed last week in Washington County Circuit Court, Douglas G. Lohman also accuses the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees of negligence in handling his grievance.
The suit asks for $50,000 from the county and $500,000 from the union.
Washington County Attorney Richard Douglas said he has not examined the suit and declined to comment. George Gisin, staff representative for AFSCME Council 67 in Baltimore, also would not comment.
