FAIRFIELD — A former Solano County jail guard has sued the Sheriff’s Office and the county claiming he is the victim of disability discrimination and other slights.

Jeffrey Fantuzzi claims in his lawsuit, filed last week, that his doctor cleared him to work full-time at the jail as long as he worked in a cool indoor environment.

Fantuzzi’s lawsuit claims jail officials failed to accommodate those workplace restrictions and they also harassed him and retaliated against him because of the limitations.

Fantuzzi, who started work with the jail in 2006, is scheduled to be in court in August for the first hearing on the lawsuit. His lawsuit seeks unspecified compensation.

County officials previously rejected a claim filed by Fantuzzi that raised the same allegations.

    Didn't his collective bargaining association step up to help this guy? With no mention in the article, I'm left to wonder if his association wasn't being more helpful to the Sheriff and his administration than to the employee. Looking forward to hearing more about this. Is this just a simple difference of opinion in the workplace... or is there a pattern of abuse and cover-up allowed or directed by the Sheriff (current or former... same thing really).
