Sears, Roebuck and Co.

Almost 10 years ago a discrimination lawsuit was filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity against Sears, Roebuck and Co. The giant retailer was accused of failing to provide reasonable accommodations to Judith Keane, a former sales clerk who worked at the retailer's River Oaks Mall store in Calumet City. Keane was unable to walk long distances and asked Sears to let her walk through a store stock room to get to her department and to eat in the stock room rather than walk to the mall's food court, but Sears refused the accommodation in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and forced Keane out of her job. Sears has agreed to pay Keane $150,000 to settle and admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement. (Jul-11-06) [CHICAGO SUN TIMES]
