York, PA: (Mar-30-07) The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit on behalf of Timothy Scott Brown, a paraplegic, against Family Dollar in Sept 2005, accusing it of non compliance with regulations set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. The suit alleged that Brown was not provided access to a bathroom and was overlooked for promotion on account of his disability. He was also forced to resign. The ADA forbids discrimination and assures equal opportunity for people with disabilities in employment, while receiving state and local government services, at commercial facilities, on transportation and with public accommodations. In a settlement reached, Family Dollar agreed to pay Brown $69,000 to settle the employment discrimination suit. [
