Can I bring a law suit against the postal manager that violated my civil and medical rights
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have had back surgery, have an implant for pain management , she continues to say I have under time , which is not the case you have base numbers for the route ie base parcels, computerized mail, cased magazines, accountable mail etc that go into the computer to give you a projected time line , the days in question I was clearly over, she has respected others medical limitations yet not mine ,
Employment Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 2 years ago
Thank you for the information.
I am presuming that you belong in a Union as a Postal Carrier and as such you must follow your Collective Bargaining Agreement's grievance process before you can file a lawsuit. You need to contact your Union Representative to grieve this issue for you before taking any further action in the case including going to your agency's EEO (Equal Employment Opportunity) Counsellor:
