Former SC worker at SRS sues, claiming discrimination

  • Follow Latest News

AIKEN — A former South Carolina worker at the Savannah River Site has filed a federal lawsuit, claiming racial and religious discrimination by co-workers.

The Aiken Standard reported today that 41-year-old Al Zeiny sued his former employer in U.S. District Court in Aiken. The Egyptian native was lead structural engineer at Washington Safety Management Solutions.

The lawsuit states that co-workers said Zeiny was linked to terrorism and bomb-making after a conversation about him being a Muslim. Zeiny says he was fired after he filed a complaint.

Washington Safety Management Solutions is part of the engineering and construction company URS Corp. A spokeswoman said Friday that the company does not usually comment on legal or personnel matters.
