U.S. Postal Service allegedly fired African-American employee for reporting racial discrimination at the workplace

May 15, 2018

PHILADELPHIA — An African-American man is suing his former employer and supervisor, the U.S. Postal Service and Megan J. Brennan, for alleged discrimination, harassment and retaliation.

Stephen Derrick filed a complaint on April 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendants violated the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was fired from his job because he reported to human resources that he had been subjected to harassment and racial discrimination. As a result, the plaintiff claims that he has suffered great financial damages, pain, emotional distress and depression. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly subjecting him to harassment and discrimination based on his race and then firing him for reporting the alleged conduct.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, interest, attorney’s fees, costs and any other appropriate relief. He is represented by Marc A. Weinberg of Saffren & Weinberg in Jenkintown.

Rules are on the books to cover their butt. But out in the field this s**t is an on-going problem.
Supervisors do what they want to do, because nobody is there to correct them and they know it.
Bunch of assholes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stephen Derrick, I hope you keep up the fight. Whatever you did, you still deserved a respectful and dignified working environment.
