Denver cash checking employees claim they were fired after being robbed
DENVER, Colorado ” Four employees of a check-cashing company say they were fired after being robbed at gunpoint in the company’s stores.
They filed suit in Denver District Court claiming Ace Cash Express Inc. fired them for not following safety procedures during robberies at three Denver stores between November and January.
The lawsuit says the robbers threatened to kill the employees if they had followed a company directive to trigger an alarm.
They also say the company had trained them to cooperate with robbers if they were held up, and not risk their lives.
Dallas-based Ace has denied wrongdoing and said it will fight the lawsuit.
The plaintiffs are Ruth Monica Perea, Felicia A. Dia, Desiree M. Lopez and Andre A. Robledo.
