EEOC Settles Disability Discrimination Lawsuit

     The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity recently settled a lawsuit against a company for allegedly discriminating against an employee due to her disability.  The EEOC’s lawsuit claimed that the employee suffered from epilepsy.  The employee suffered a seizure at home after work and called to ask her supervisor for two days off of work to recover from the seizure.  When she returned to work, the company fired the employee and told her that she was fired because her absences occurred during her probationary period.  This alleged conduct is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination against employees due to a disability.  See EEOC v. PML Services, LLC, No. 3:18- cv- 00805 (W.D. Wis.).
