EEOC Files Lawsuit Against Company For Disability Discrimination And Retaliation

A recruiting company violated Federal law by firing an employee because of her disability and then retaliated against her for filing her disability discrimination charge with the EEOC.  The EEOC filed a lawsuit charging that the company retaliated against former employee by providing a negative and misleading reference to a company that was in the process of hiring her.  The EEOC’s lawsuit also alleges that the company retaliated against Ms. Bauer when it sued her for alleging that she violated her employment agreement by filing her EEOC charge.

Federal law prohibits discrimination based on a person’s disability and also protects workers from retaliation after they report the discrimination.  Remember, you are protected by law when you complain of unlawful discrimination based on disability, race, religion, sex, national origin or age.
