Case Summary

In September 2002, the Chicago District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against HQ Global Workplaces, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging discrimination on the basis of disability and retaliation in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Specifically, the EEOC alleged that the defendant maintained policies on leave and part-time status availability precluding reasonable accommodation in violation of the ADA, terminated complainant based on her disability, and disciplined complainant's manager for providing complainant with a reasonable accommodation. Following some discovery, the parties jointly dismissed the lawsuit in May 2003.
