Philadelphia employment lawyer, Sidney L. Gold, Principal Shareholder of Sidney L. Gold & Associates, has filed an age discrimination and wrongful termination lawsuit on behalf of his client in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Sparks Exhibits & Environment Corp. Gold’s client of Napa, California, was employed by Sparks, a Philadelphia company, as vice president of strategic accounts from January, 2014 to June, 2014.
According to the complaint, over the course of her employment the plaintiff alleges she was subject to discrimination based on her age and sex. She asserts that she was denied opportunity for growth and excluded from important accounts. After enduring blatant attempts to have her employment terminated, the employee states she was fired in June. The articulated reason for her termination was based on her age and sex. A younger male has since filled the plaintiff’s position.
