8 UPS employees claim racial discrimination
The men also contend an effigy of a black UPS employee hung from the ceiling outside the manager's office for four days.
The suit, filed Friday in Fayette County Circuit Court in Lexington, names three managers and the company as defendants.
A message left for a UPS spokesman was not immediately returned Tuesday.
The men say they were punished more severely than white employees for "alleged workplace infractions." Two of the employees were fired; two others resigned, which the lawsuit says constitutes "constructive discharge."
The men are seeking unspecified damages from Atlanta-based UPS.
