A former employee of Sunoco Inc. and Station Management Consultants Inc. is suing his ex-employer over allegations of violations of civil rights with a charge of racial discrimination.

Ervin A. Dwight, an African-American, filed a lawsuit Aug. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Sunoco Inc. and Station Management Consultants Inc. citing racial discrimination under the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1991, as well as the Civil Rights Act Pennsylvania Human Relations Act and Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations Ordinance.

According to the complaint, while employed by Sunoco Inc., from May 2011 until July 25, 2013, Dwight claims in his lawsuit that he was subject to discriminatory treatment such as excessive supervision, humiliation and harassment. And he believes he was retaliated against for asserting his rights.

He is seeking all rights, privileges, benefits and income that would have been received by him, the claim states, but for Sunoco’s unlawful and discriminatory practices. The complaint also seeks compensatory and punitive damages for Dwight. He is being represented by Philadelphia-based attorney Harry J. Sher.
