HOUSTON — A disabled Pacesetter Personnel Services (PPS) employee claims he is not being given accommodations because he is African American.
Willis Wiley filed a pro se complaint Jan. 6 in the Harris County District Court against PPS alleging violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 1991, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act, the Texas Constitution and the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Willis, who has one of his legs amputated above the knee, began working for PPS on Oct. 23, 2019 and is still employed as a part time employee. He claims his worksite manager at PPS's Houston facility refuses to give him "light duty work assignments" because he is African American.
Willis seeks monetary relief of $2.5 million, trial by jury and all other just relief.
