COLCHESTER, Conn., July 30, 2007 LAWFUEL The Legal Newswire — On the heels of announcing the Western District of Pennsylvania’s certification of a nationwide class of United Parcel Service (UPS) (NYSE:UPS) employees in the action entitled Hohider, et al. v. UPS, Scott+Scott LLP today announced it has launched an informational website at http://www.upsemployeeclass.com/ for the benefit of all affected UPS employees and interested parties. The website provides class members with important information about the case, including links to the complaints filed against UPS, the Court orders denying UPS’s motion for summary judgment and motion to dismiss, and the recent July 16, 2007 order certifying the nationwide class of UPS employees. From this website, employees that have experienced UPS’s discriminatory practices may also contact Scott+Scott and provide their specific contact and related information.
“The UPS class action is a complex lawsuit that concerns many thousands of employees,” said lead attorney David R. Scott of Scott+Scott LLP.
“Many UPS employees have questions about the case and are unsure whether they are in the class. This UPS-specific website addressed those questions.”
Scott added that Scott+Scott will continue to update the website to ensure class members are kept informed.
The action against UPS affects present and former employees, dating back to May 2000, who were precluded from returning to work due to medical reasons because of alleged across-the-board policies and practices of UPS that violate the Americans with Disabilities Act.
