PITTSBURGH — An individual is suing her former employer, Universal Medical Administration Services LLC, for alleged disability discrimination and wrongful termination.
Jennifer Newman filed a complaint on April 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendant violated the American with Disabilities Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
