EEOC Sues Bath & Body Works for Disability Discrimination

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a lawsuit on September 26, 2018 alleging that Bath & Body Works refused to consider a reasonable accommodation request made by an employee and then discharged her because of her disability. Bath & Body Works is a national retail chain that sells bath and beauty products.

The EEOC reported the employee had vision issues related to diabetes. When the employee requested a larger monitor for the register, she was sent home and her hours were reduced. The store manager bought a cheap magnifying glass and humiliated the employee by presenting it to her in front of her co-workers. The alleged conduct violates the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires the employer to investigate and discuss an employee's request for reasonable accommodations.

Title 1 of the ADA of 1990 prohibits private employers, State and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions with 15 or more employees, from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities.
