CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey woman is suing her former employer for not letting her avoid commuting during rush hour, which she says aggravated her anxiety and depression.

Andrea DeGerolamo says her employer, Fulton Financial Corp. of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was legally required to accommodate her doctor-backed request for different work hours.

Her lawsuit accuses Fulton Financial of violating New Jersey’s anti-discrimination law and the federal Family Medical Leave Act.

A Fulton spokeswoman told the Lancaster Newspapers (https://bit.ly/1oaOrSf ) the company does not comment on pending litigation.

The Berlin, New Jersey, woman says the company initially granted her request for different hours but later reversed itself. She says she was retaliated against and then unlawfully fired.

The lawsuit was moved from state to federal court in June at the company’s request.
