NEW ORLEANS – An African-American male alleges he was subjected to hostile work environment as a delivery driver.
Julian Jackson filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against UPS Ground Freight Inc. alleging that the former employer violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he was hired by the defendant in 2006 and beginning in 2012, was subject to discrimination and harassment by the terminal mangers. The suit states he was terminated on July 5, 2012, but reinstated after filing an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission charge and a hearing was held between the defendant and the union. He alleges the treatment and hostile work environment continued, and he was terminated again in December 2014.
The plaintiff holds UPS Ground Freight Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly subjected him to harassment and unequal terms and conditions of employment, created a hostile work environment and retaliated against him for complaining of discrimination and retaliation.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for all damages, with legal interest and for all general and equitable relief as the nature of the case may permit. He is represented by Wanda Anderson Davis of Leefe, Gibbs, Sullivan and Dupre LLC in Metairie.
