PITTSBURGH — An asset protection team leader is suing Target Corp., a former employer, citing alleged gender discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination.
Adham Hamed filed a complaint on Jan. 9 in the Allegheny County Courts of Common Pleas against Target Corp., alleging the former employer violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 16, 2017, he was terminated from his employment. He was allegedly caused to suffer loss of income and benefits, humiliation, damage to reputation, inconvenience and emotional distress.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks reinstatement or front pay and award for compensatory and punitive damages, costs and expenses and such other legal and equitable relief. He is represented by Samuel Cordes and John Black III of Rothman Gordon PC in Pittsburgh.
The Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas Case No. is 2:19-cv-00020-RCM.
