electronic reading article Fact sheet on recent EEOC litigation related developments posted by SABRINA GREEN

  • After reading the Electronic Reserve Reading article on EEOC v. Verizon Maryland, Inc., et al. (D. Md. No. 1:11-cv-01832-JKB filed July 5, 2011) (resolved on or around July 6, 2011). The EEOC’s Philadelphia District Office sued 24 named subsidiaries of Verizon Communications after the company unlawfully denied reasonable accommodations to hundreds of employees and disciplined and/or fired them pursuant to Verizon’s “no fault” attendance plans. The defendant did not allow exceptions to the attendance plans for individuals whose “chargeable absences” were caused by their disabilities. The consent decree settling the suit, in which the defendant agreed to pay $20 million and provide significant equitable relief, represents the largest disability discrimination settlement in a single lawsuit in EEOC’s history.

Verizon to Pay $20 Million to Settle Nationwide EEOC Disability Suit7/6/2011

I found this article very interesting, Verizon Maryland, Inc. was ordered to pay 24 former employees $20 million dollars for firing them for missing work because of their disability. I was surprised that Verizon, being such a large company that they were not aware of the disability laws.
