    UPS denies worker’s claim in a lawsuit that he faced demotion due to a brain condition - Charlotte Observer

    UPS officials on Thursday said they will “vigorously defend” the company against a Charlotte area worker’s claim in a lawsuit that he faced a demotion or termination after developing a brain condition.

    In a statement to The Charlotte Observer, a UPS spokesman said the worker “is not providing all of the relevant facts regarding his case. UPS went above and beyond what is normally required by the (Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990), and will vigorously defend our actions.”

    Patrick Amanuel of Monroe said in his federal lawsuit that he had recently been promoted to full-time automotive maintenance supervisor in summer 2017 when he told company officials he was having trouble memorizing the UPS preventative maintenance inspection manual. The company requires workers to memorize the manual, he said.

    Is this a politically correct way to get rid of someone they don't like?

    I think there was an 'ol boy named Einstein who said, essentially, "why memorize something you can look up?".
