Case Summary

In September 2006, the EEOC's Philadelphia District Office filed suit against the restaurant chain Denny's. The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland and alleged that Denny's violated Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act by refusing to allow a disabled employee to continue working there, and by refusing to grant reasonable accommodations by making exceptions to its policy placing a cap on medical leave time. Between 2008 and 2010, the parties held mul…

In September 2006, the EEOC's Philadelphia District Office filed suit against the restaurant chain Denny's. The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland and alleged that Denny's violated Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act by refusing to allow a disabled employee to continue working there, and by refusing to grant reasonable accommodations by making exceptions to its policy placing a cap on medical leave time.

Between 2008 and 2010, the parties held multiple failed settlement negotiation conferences and engaged in discovery. On January 15, 2010, the defendant filed a motion for summary judgment arguing that one of the named plaintiffs was not a person with a qualified disability and that there were other settled facts barring her claim. On July 16, 2010, the court denied this motion finding that there was sufficient evidence to support that a reasonable jury could find for the plaintiff.

Beginning in December 2010, the parties again engaged in settlement negotiations. On June 24, 2011, the court entered a consent decree for a two year duration. The consent decree requires the defendant to not discriminate or retaliate against persons with disabilities in its hiring practices, to change its policies on accommodation and leave, to provide training to its employees, submit to reporting requirements, to pay $1,300,000 in to the claimants, and provide offers of reinstatements to the claimants. The decree laid out various timeframes to complete trainings and had a bi-annual reporting requirement for two years. There has been no further docket activity and so the case is presumably closed.
