ROANOKE (AP) — A contractor that provides security at the Radford Army Ammunition Plant is being sued by an employee who alleges co-workers racially harassed him.
John McKinney’s lawsuit seeks an injunction against G4S Government Solutions, Inc.
The lawsuit alleges that white co-workers used a noose and a white sheet to intimidate McKinney, who is African-American.
McKinney’s lawyer, Terry Grimes, tells The Roanoke Times that the 35-year-old Christiansburg resident remains on the job. G4S declined to comment to the newspaper.
The lawsuit was filed March 11 in U.S. District Court in Roanoke. It seeks unspecified damages.
