The Chicago District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Exelon Generation Co., L.L.C., who own and operate a nuclear power plant in Illinois, in September of 2005 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The suit alleged failure to reasonably accommodate, disciplining, and terminating a disabled employee in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The suit was filed on September 30, 2005 and on the same day the parties moved for the entry of a consent decree. The decree was signed on October 5, 2005.

The consent decree included both monetary and injunctive relief. The complainant was to receive $60,000 and her attorneys were to receive $25,000. The injunctive relief requires the defendant to adopt an anti-discrimination policy, distribute the policy, post notice, train all managers and supervisors and medical personnel, and report on compliance and all complaints of disability discrimination every six months.
