PHILADELPHIA — A fired employee is suing Federal Express Corp., a courier delivery services company, citing alleged age discrimination, hostile work environment, and wrongful termination.
Louis J. Pagliei filed a complaint on Dec. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Federal Express Corp., alleging the courier delivery services company violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 27, 2017, he was terminated from his employment after approximately 30 years of service.
He allegedly has suffered lost wages and benefits, pain and suffering, emotional distress and humiliation. The plaintiff holds Federal Express Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly subjected him to disparate treatment and abruptly terminated his employment and filled his position with a substantially younger and less-experienced courier.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, costs, expenses, attorney's fees and such other legal and equitable relief. He is represented by Ari Karpf of Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti in Bensalem.
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 2:18-cv-05602-MAK.
