Protecting "Vulnerable Workers" Still An EEOC Priority

I wrote many a post in my prior blog about the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Plan (“SEP”), which made protecting “vulnerable” workers a priority.  I said before that protecting farm workers, migrant workers, workers in isolated areas, and mentally-challenged Henry’s Turkey workers was something that the EEOC was focusing on.  It still is. But some employers either ignore…

One Last Dead Horse To Beat — The EEOC And Health Care Providers

Forgive me this once for beating a dead horse again, but the dead horses keep coming!  I mean the “dead horse” which I have kept beating and beating for years — the never ending flow of EEOC lawsuits under the ADA which target medical or health care providers.  Why won’t these medical folks ever learn?

A San Diego surgical center – the Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion – allegedly refused to hire an applicant with a minor ankle problem that the EEOC said would not…

Is “Shooting Fish In A Barrel” A Lost Sport?

I thought that a new case of a health care provider being caught discriminating on the basis of disability would be a good way to start this blog, since I spent so much time writing about this phenomenon in my old blog.  Recall the characterizations “low hanging fruit,” and “shooting fish in a barrel?” I did…
