PHILADELPHIA — A man is suing PSC Industrial Outsourcing LP, a former employer, citing alleged employment discrimination.
Troy D. Harley filed a complaint on April 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against PSC Industrial Outsourcing LP alleging that the former employer violated the Civil Rights Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that during his employment, he has suffered damages, anxiety, stress, humiliation and embarrassment. The plaintiff holds PSC Industrial Outsourcing LP responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide a discrimination-free workplace, treated him harshly because of his race, suspended him on October 7, 2013, for one day on grounds of not wearing a seat belt and subsequently terminated him for the purported seat belt infraction plus additional claimed prior infractions, including for not shaving properly.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for back pay, front pay, loss of benefits, punitive damages, injunctive and declaratory relief, attorney's fees, costs, interest and and such other relief as the court may deem proper. He is represented by Scott M. Pollins of Pollins Law Firm in Swarthmore.
