THOMAS v. GUARDSMARK, INC., 03-1593

Dismissal of plaintiff's retaliatory discharge claim is reversed where his action was not barred by a six-month limitations period found in his employment agreement since the period did not run at the time he was indefinitely suspended, as his suspension was not an "effective discharge."
