Who Do You Think The EEOC Targets Most Under The Disabilities Act?
My recent article in Above The Law provides a few hints:
“The EEOC sued a senior living community in Colorado for refusing to accommodate an employee with fibromyalgia. The employee’s job?
The Health & Wellness Director!
A large managed care organization settled an EEOC lawsuit alleging that it fired a food service worker suffering from hydrocephalus. The EEOC said at the time that “One would expect that a medical center, of all places, would be sensitive and understanding on the needs and challenges of an employee with a disability.”
Any ideas? Who are these heartless employers?
Too frequently – if EEOC cases are any indication – they are health care and medical providers, such as hospitals, nursing homes, managed care facilities … in short, the caring professions.”
