PITTSBURGH — A patient care coordinator is suing Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy, a former employer, citing alleged discrimination and wrongful termination.
Staci Johnson filed a complaint on Nov. 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy, alleging her former employer violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 9, 2016, she was terminated from her employment. She suffered loss of a full-time position paying $14.25 per hour, with 8-10 hours of overtime per week and employment benefits, the suit says.
The plaintiff holds Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide reasonable accommodation, refused to engage in a meaningful interactive process, and terminated her because of her age and disabilities.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all available relief, costs, and attorney fees. She is represented by Erik Yurkovich of Wexford.
