HARRISBURG — A team leader is suing TE Connectivity Corp., a technology company, citing alleged disability discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination.
Crystal Scheib filed a complaint on Jan. 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against TE Connectivity Corp., alleging the company violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, between March 28, 2017 and May 3, 2017, the plaintiff sustained an injury while at work. She alleges she was abruptly terminated on July 14, 2017, and that she has suffered lost wages and benefits, emotional pain and suffering.
The plaintiff holds TE Connectivity Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly retaliated against her for filing a Workers' Compensation claim and terminated her employment for refusing to participate in a film reenactment of her injury.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, attorney's fees, costs and such other fair and proper relief. She is represented by Samuel Dion of Dion & Goldberger in Philadelphia.
The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 1:19-cv-00145-CCC.
