Gold Representing Former Allentown Police Officer in Discrimination Suit

July 26th, 2019

Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. is representing a former Allentown, Pennsylvania police officer who faced race discrimination and disability discrimination at his job. The former Allentown police officer who is African-American alleged that he was harassed by his superiors and colleagues due to his race, and he was denied permission by his superiors to undergo therapy and medication for his diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). After the denial and reporting the discrimination, the victim states that he was fired for purportedly violating the police department policies. He also claims that he was passed over for promotions during his term of employment between the years of 2012 and 2014. The federal discrimination lawsuit was filed on Wednesday at the Pennsylvania Eastern District Court in Allentown.

Workers experiencing employment discrimination of any kind may deal with harassment, a hostile work environment, denial of promotions or participation in high profile assignments, retaliation for filing complaints, and even wrongful termination. No employee should feel that they are not valued as a contributing member of the staff or face toxic behavior by their coworkers or superiors. Engaging in the discrimination of an employee is illegal under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
