MEDIA — A fired store associate is suing Lou's Jewelry and Pawn, a former employer, citing alleged disability discrimination and wrongful termination.
Jamier Scott filed a complaint on Jan. 7 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against Lou's Jewelry and Pawn, alleging it violated the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 25, 2017, she was terminated from her employment. She has suffered economic loss, emotional distress, mental anguish, humiliation and pain and suffering, the suit says. The plaintiff holds Lou's Jewelry and Pawn responsible because the defendant allegedly subjected her to adverse employment actions and terminated her employment because of her disability.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants in an amount greater than $75,000, reinstatement of position, attorney's fees, costs and such other just, proper and equitable relief. She is represented by Graham Baird of the Law Offices of Eric A. Shore PC in Philadelphia.
