Target Settles Employee Discrimination Suit for $160K


This is a settlement for the Employment lawsuit.

San Francisco, CA: A $160K settlement has been awarded to a former employee of retail giant Target, ending his discrimination lawsuit against the company. Jeremy Schott, who filed the suit, took medical leave in 2004 due to his experiencing a seizure. He was 29 years old at the time. In his suit, he alleged that when he returned to work his weekly hours had been reduced from 17 to eight. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Target on Schott's behalf, alleging a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Target's counsel contended that Schott's work hours were decreased because of poor performance and a lack of motivation. The parties agreed to settle for $160,000. As part of the settlement Target has agreed to designate an ADA coordinator and implement a policy regarding reasonable accommodations.
