Mailman Asks US Supreme Court for Relief

November 12th, 2009 by flanews

A former US Post Office employee is taking his claims of discrimination, intimidation, and physical abuse to the countrys highest court.

Kenneth Wills says from 1995 though 2005 some of his coworkers at the Tallahassee Post Office physically and verbally abused him and even threatened to take his life. Wills was fired from the Postal Service. After being fired, he says the intimidation continues as postal employees frequently go through his mail. Wills is asking the US Supreme Court to hear his case.

It was some of the harassment, retaliation, the death threats, physical assault, and just a host of things that happened that I just didn’t want to stay silent on, said Wills.

Wills is able to appeal his case under the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act signed into law by President Obama earlier this year. The act extends the deadline for people to bring suits against former employers who may have violated their civil rights.
