Illinois Manufacturer Unlawfully Fired Employee It Regarded as Disabled, Federal Agency Charged

IDEC Corporation, a worldwide industrial device manufacturer, agreed to a 2 1/2 year consent decree and will pay $275,000 to a former employee’s estate and attorney. IDEC must train its East Dundee employees on the ADA’s protections and report to the EEOC all future complaints of disability discrimination as well as requests by employees for workplace accommodation of disabilities that IDEC denies.

The EEOC filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago (EEOC v. IDEC Corp., Civil Action No. 18-cv-4168) in June 2018.
