After an in-house counsel began raising concerns about toxic chemicals from the company’s factories contaminating drinking water, he was fired, according to a complaint filed today against French conglomerate Compagnie de Saint-Gobain and its current and former North American CEOs, Mark Rayfield and Tom Kinisky.  

Amiel Gross, who worked as an in-house lawyer at Saint-Gobain’s U.S. headquarters in Malvern, Pennsylvania, for six years, filed a complaint Tuesday with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. He accuses the company, Rayfield and Kinisky of retaliating against him for whistleblower actions protected under the Safe Drinking Water Act and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
