Wednesday, Jul. 6th 2011 6:41 AM

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a disability discrimination lawsuit against the Tideland Electric Membership Corporation for not accommodating an employee and then firing him because of his disability. The employee takes a legally prescribed narcotic medication to manage a chronic pain condition. After learning about this, Tideland EMC terminated the employee without giving him time to change his medication regimen to keep his employment. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act it is unlawful to discriminate against an employee based on a disability.
