HARRISBURG – A former UPS driver is suing UPS' Gettysburg office, alleging he was fired because of his age.
George Thomas Steinberger II filed a lawsuit Dec. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against United Parcel Service alleging age discrimination.
According to the complaint, Steinberger, who worked as a driver for UPS from 1987 until Oct. 3, 2013, was fired after allegations of ``dishonesty” were made against him by UPS representatives. The suit says Steinberger, 53 was fired because of his age, and that he has already sought and denied relief by the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.
Steinberger seeks reinstatement of his job, restoration of benefits and back wages, as well as more than $50,000, plus punitive damages and costs of suit. He is representing himself.
