PHILADELPHIA — A table games dealer is suing Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment Inc., which does business as Parx Casino, citing alleged disability discrimination and retaliation.
Michael Napoli filed a complaint July 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendant violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
According to the complaint, Napoli was fired by Parx on Feb. 2, 2017 for exceeding the casino's work-absence point system.
Napoli claims the defendant never offered reasonable accommodation and terminated his employment because of his disabilities and in retaliation for requesting accommodation.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment in an amount in excess of $150,000, as well as other relief. He is represented by Michael Murphy of Murphy Law Group LLC in Philadelphia.
