Settlement reached in claim filed under protections of ADA

Many of our Colorado readers may know that whenever an employee has a discrimination complaint to take up against an employer the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is likely to get involved. A discrimination problem can arise from a variety of employer behaviors, such as discrimination based on a person's race, nationality, gender or even a person's disability. When a discrimination claim is based on a disability, however, the Americans with Disabilities Act comes into play in addition to other employment-based laws.

So, it should come as no surprise that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission would consider this condition as one of thousands that are covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

However, new employees also have to be cautious, because, in many cases, employers are watching closely to see if a new hire fits in with the company dynamics. Some employers are also wary of new employees who need to take time off of work early in their period of employment. For one such employee, this very type of situation appears to have led to litigation.
