PHILADELPHIA — A former employee is suing Amazon.com Inc. and its subsidiary, Amazon.com.DEDC LLC, for alleged disability discrimination and wrongful termination.
Ryan Anderson filed a complaint on April 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendants violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was fired from his job after the defendants allegedly accused him of failing to show for work. The plaintiff claims that he did not show up for work because he was never notified that he had been cleared to return to work. As a result, the plaintiff claims that he has suffered financial damages, emotional distress and humiliation.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, costs, expenses and any other legal and equitable relief. He is represented by Ari R. Karpf of Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti PC in Bensalem.
