$18M Settlement Awarded fo Ex-UPS Supervisor in Wrongful Termination Lawsuit

This is a settlement for the Employment Law - California lawsuit.

Los Angeles, CA: A former United Parcel supervisor (UPS) has been awarded an $18 million verdict for wrongful termination in settlement of his California labor lawsuit. Marlo was denied a promotion for a number of years, and was eventually terminated on November 12, 2008, a few months before his wage-and-hour case was scheduled for trial.

Michael Marlo had originally filed a class action wage-and-hour lawsuit against UPS in 2003, but when the class action failed he filed an individual lawsuit. The individual case first went to trial in May 2009.

Marlo had worked for UPS for 22 years. He had made complaints about workplace safety concerns and safety violations to UPS and to multiple government agencies. The individual complaints included inadequate heaters for employees working in sub-freezing temperatures, employees working well over 40 hours per week, and employees driving UPS trucks after working more than 60 hours per week, violating DOT regulations.

In mid-2008, after the class action lawsuit was decertified, Marlo encouraged other UPS supervisors to file their own lawsuits against UPS in an attempt to change allegedly unsafe working conditions at the company. Fifty-four UPS supervisors filed individual lawsuits against UPS between August and October 2008.
