UPS Freight will pay $75,000 to resolve a three-year old federal lawsuit over disability discrimination at its service center in Kansas City, Kansas, federal authorities said.

The U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed suit in August 2017 (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. UPS Ground Freight, Inc., Civil Action No. 2:17-cv- 02453) under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

According to the suit, Thomas Diebold worked as a road driver for UPS Freight from 2006 until his retirement in 2015, at its Kansas City service center. After suffering a minor stroke in 2013, Diebold sought temporary non-driving work. But company policy at the time allowed such reassignments only for drivers whose licenses were suspended for non-medical reasons.
