Bank of America to Pay $110,000 to a former temporary worker to Resolve an EEOC Disability Discrimination Suit 

The #EEOC alleged that Bank of America failed to #accommodate a visually impaired data entry worker and instead terminated his temporary assignment at one of the bank's branches in downtown Chicago after one day on the job.  In addition to paying the $110,000, the decree includes an injunction requiring the bank provide #reasonable #accommodations to temporary and contingent workers at its branches throughout Illinois, provide for training about the #ADA's #requirements and impose record keeping and reporting requirements for the duration of the decree.
