Shocking! Disabled Employees Dissed By Doctors

I wrote in my weekly Above the Law article last year that the EEOC targets health care and medical providers, such as doctors, hospitals, nursing homes, managed care facilities … in short, the caring professions, for alleged workplace violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act (“ADA”).  I’ve also written about it here all too often.

Why, I asked.

Think about it.

Health care folks – the caring folks, the ones who treat the sick, wounded and lame – violating the ADA.  Doesn’t the hypocrisy jump out at you?  If you were a health care or medical provider would you like to be on the radar of the EEOC for … discriminating against people with disabilities?

What could be worse press.  What a way to be seen by the public.

What an easy mark.
