A chauffeur to Sweden’s UN ambassador is suing for over a million dollars after he says he was traumatized after being forced to assemble an IKEA wardrobe piece by himself.

According to the Post, Carlos Figueroa, 52, was injured in 2012 after his racially-insensitive bosses forced him assemble the 225-pound piece of furniture with no help. "I’ll be in pain for the rest of my life. I’m disabled," Figueroa told The Post. "It’s been very emotional. I’m still in a lot of pain."

Figueroa, who has worked for Sweden's New York Mission to the United Nations since 2006 as a chauffeur and office clerk, claims in his lawsuit that he was never supposed to be a "handyman," but his boss at the time, former Ambassador Marten Grunditz who died last year, wouldn't let him hire anyone to help because "it was cheaper" just to have him do it. On day three of assembling the wardrobe, Figueroa fell from a five-foot ladder while trying to hang sliding doors, and severely injured his back and legs.

He claims he was instructed to lie to doctors about how he injured himself "to avoid an uninsured Workers Compensation claim." Figueroa says he was forced to take two medical leaves of absence, from September 2013 through February 2014 and from May 2014 onward, because of his extensive injuries.

In addition to those injuries, Figueroa also claims in the lawsuit that his employers routinely discriminated against him because he is Puerto Rican. The News reports that he was repeatedly accused of stealing things that went missing from the office because "Swedes don't steal." He also claims one supervisor complained to him that "Spanish people" are "loud" and "smoke pot."
