Anderson v. UPS (Disability Discrimination)

In February 2008, UPS employee William Anderson, Jr. filed a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) alleging he was subjected to discrimination by UPS, including constructive discharge, on the basis of his handicap, bipolar depression and anxiety disorder. He claimed UPS failed to reasonably accommodate his request to work in a daytime position with less stress and fewer hours. The MCAD substantiated Anderson’s allegations and awarded him more than $740,000 in lost wages and $125,000 in damages.
