The EEOC's Oklahoma City area office sued Citgo Petroleum Corporation on September 29, 2003 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated Americans with Disabilities Act when it discriminated based on physical disability (Juvenile Retinoschisis) by failing to permanently hire and terminated his temporary employment. The EEOC filed a motion for partial summary judgment in November, 2004 which was denied later that month. The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment in the same month, which was never resolved. The parties entered into a consent decree on February 14, 2005, which stipulated that the defendant would pay the complainant $73,500 in damages, post a notice of compliance with the ADA, provide ADA training to its employees, draft and distribute a non-discrimination policy, provide a neutral reference for and expunge the employment records of the complainant, and report all applicants denied for medical reasons.
