Army Veteran Sues Planet Fitness for Discrimination

Brock Fritz Headshot

A man is suing Planet Fitness — his former place of employment — for discrimination due to injuries he received while serving in the United States Army.

The Toledo Blade reported Wednesday that Connor Ryan, who says he was denied a chance to return to work after deployment, has filed a lawsuit claiming he was treated differently due to his perceived disabling condition.

“Although Ryan made a substantial commitment to service his country, after sustaining a physical impairment during his service, Planet Fitness refused to return him to work in violation of state and federal laws,” said Daniel Dubow, Ryan’s attorney. “Ryan and our firm will continue to fight to ensure that employers do not take advantage of individuals because they have served our country and have suffered physical impairments through their service.”
