Equal Employment Opportunity Commission settlement

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) settled an employment discrimination lawsuit against King Soopers, a grocery store chain operated by Kroger. King Soopers will pay $80,000 to an employee who worked in a store in Lakewood, Colorado. Store managers bullied and taunted the employee because of his intellectual disability which eventually led to his termination from employment. The company will provide training in the Americans with Disabilities Act to all of its managers. To read the EEOC press release, go to http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/release/12-13-11.cfm.
