Violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act

“The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (Commission or EEOC)… has resolved a disability discrimination lawsuit against aerospace giant Honeywell for $100,000 for a single charging party, as well as significant injunctive and remedial relief. The EEOC alleged that Honeywell, a large aerospace and systems control company employing over 100,000 people, violated the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 USC § 1981, et. seq.) (ADA) when it engaged in a pattern of discrimination against Sherry Layne, a disability-rights activist who is hearing and visually impaired. According to the litigation, Honeywell discriminated against Ms. Layne by withdrawing an accommodation for her disability, involuntarily transferring her, failing to accommodate her disability, and discriminating against her because she sought an accommodation of her disability.”
