An accused who was ordered by a court to stay away from his place of employment as part of his bail is claiming wrongful dismissal after he was terminated from his job.
Anthony Ifill, 64, an employee of Purity Bakeries, had been charged with two other men, and pleaded not guilty, to stealing 60 packs of salt bread; ten packs of coconut bread; 24 packs of sandwich loaves; 12 packs of choice loaves; 30 packs of lunch cakes; 15 trays and ten packs of turnovers, all valued at $503, belonging to Purity Bakeries on July 14, 2020.
Ifill, of Church Hill Road, Gall Hill, Christ Church, was released on
$1 000 bail with the condition that he stay away from Purity.
However, through his attorneys Arthur Holder and Ensley Grainger, he has filed a suit against his workplace, saying he was wrongfully dismissed in 2020. He claims that the company issued a notice to him informing him he was suspended with pay until July 22, 2020.
