The EEOC's Seattle district office sued Huntleigh USA Corporation on September 29, 2004 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when it discriminated based on a physical disability (traumatic brain injury) by failing to provide a reasonable accommodation for him and ultimately terminating his employment. The parties entered into a consent decree on June 13, 2005, which stipulated that the defendant would pay the complainant $25,000 in damages, post a notice of compliance with the ADA, provide ADA and reasonable accommodation training to its managers, draft and distribute a non-discrimination policy, and report complaints of ADA discrimination and compliance with the consent decree to the EEOC semiannually.
