The Milwaukee area office of the EEOC brought this suit against Leiferman Enterprises, LLC d/b/a Harmon Autoglass in September 2006 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. Auto Glass Repair and Windshield Replacement Services, Inc. is also named as a defendant, due to its status as successor to Leiferman. The complaint alleges that, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Leiferman terminated an employee due to his diabetes. The parties settled by entry of a consent decree in February 2008.

The consent decree required Auto Glass to distribute its disability discrimination policy to all employees and to any new employees for two years, and to institute a training program aimed at educating employees about the Americans with Disabilities Act. Auto Glass was also required to post a public notice regarding this discrimination suit for one year and to certify its compliance with those requirements to the EEOC. Additionally, Auto Glass has been required to make written reports to the EEOC regarding requests for reasonable accommodation of disabilities and to retain related records. Auto Glass has also agreed to pay $45,000.00 in lost wages and damages to complainant.
