A former employee of the City of Tampa filed an action for unlawful retaliation in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and the Florida Civil Rights Act (“FCRA”).
Plaintiff was employed as a City Solid Waste Collection Driver. At some time during his employment, h
e was diagnosed with a medical condition that allegedly limited one or more of his major life activities. He filed a Charge of Discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), asserting that the City failed to reasonably accommodate his disability. He then filed, pro se, a lawsuit under the ADA for disability discrimination against the City. Plaintiff was still employed by the City when he filed his pro se lawsuit.
