PITTSBURGH — A deaf individual is suing his former employers, MCLS Inc. and Cennial Company Inc., for alleged disability discrimination and wrongful termination.

Thomas J. Stephenson filed a complaint on April 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendants violated Titles I and V of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff claims that the defendants failed to provide him with on-the-job training that was apt for deaf individuals. As a result, the plaintiff allegedly was blamed for not properly doing tasks that he claims he wasn't trained to do. He allegedly was then fired. Consequently, the plaintiff claims that he has suffered emotional distress and financial damages.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, attorney's fees, costs and any other just and appropriate relief. He is represented by Richard S. Matesic of Richard S. Matesic in Pittsburgh.
