PITTSBURGH — An African-American man is suing Milestone Centers Inc., his former employer, citing alleged failure to uphold Americans with Disabilities Act regulations and racial discrimination.
Jayvan Tarver filed a complaint on May 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against the defendant, alleging that the former employer allegedly violated the Civil Rights Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that upon his return to work from being hospitalized for an extended period of time, he was met with resistance and was subjected to racial discrimination. The plaintiff holds Milestone Centers Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly drastically cut his working hours, refused to give him the opportunity to address complaint against him and terminated his employment for allegedly violating the code of conduct without an opportunity to defend himself.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in his favor and against the defendant for all damages, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest, costs of suit and attorney's fees and such other relief as may be appropriate under the circumstances. He is represented by Martell Harris of Kraemer, Manes & Associates LLC in Pittsburgh.
