Hawaii Disability Discrimination Claim

G4S Secure Solutions agreed to pay $90,000 and provide other relief to settle a disability discrimination charge filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The charge alleged that G4S violated federal law when it failed to provide a reasonable accommodation for one of its employees in Hawaii, a security guard who required additional leave while undergoing medical treatment. In lieu of additional leave, G4S fired the security guard. The EEOC found reasonable cause to believe that G4S failed to provide a reasonable accommodation and terminated the employee while on medical leave, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. During its investigation, the EEOC also identified another employee who was discriminated against due to his disability. G4S settled the matter without admitting liability.
