HOUSTON — An employee with disability is suing United Rentals Inc., an equipment rental company, citing alleged discrimination.
Zachary C. Gay filed a complaint on March 2, in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against United Rentals Inc. alleging that the equipment rental company violated the Americans with Disabilities Act regulations.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, due to defendant's discriminatory conduct, he has suffered and will continue to suffer loss wages and benefits, humiliation, emotional distress, mental anguish and other incidental and consequential damages.
