Disabled man accuses Bergen Power Pipe Supports of workplace hostility | Pennsylvania Record

PITTSBURGH— A Mount Pleasant man is suing an industrial company, alleging workplace hostility due to his disabilities.

Stephen R. Knopp filed a complaint Feb. 12 in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Bergen Power Pipe Supports Inc, and Pipe Supports Ltd, with offices in Donora, alleging hostility.

According to the complaint, Knopp suffers from learning disabilities, which causes him a speech impediment. On June 30, 2008, the plaintiff says he was hired as a welder but alleges he has been subjected to harassment because of his disability.
