Pinellas County Man Sues Postal Service Over Lunch Break

POSTED: 9:09 am EDT March 23, 2007

TAMPA, Fla. -- A Pinellas County man is suing the US Postal Service over his lunch breaks.

Kenneth Fox said his painful arthritis requires him to keep moving, but his bosses are forcing him to take lunch breaks. So the 55-year-old military veteran decided to sue the postal service under the Americans with Disabilities Act. He claims the mandatory lunch breaks are a violation of his rights under the law.

The lawsuit said allowing Fox to work through lunch is a "reasonable accommodation" required under the Americans With Disabilities Act. It's asking for an injunction and attorneys fees.
