April 24, 2017 — The ADA has agreed to pay almost $2 million to settle two discrimination charges filed against the association.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) investigated charges that the association fired two employees in retaliation for complaining to its board of directors about potential violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and other antidiscrimination laws. The ADA will pay $1.95 million to resolve the charges, according the EEOC.
The former employees who were discharged were the association’s former chief legal counsel and the former director of human resources.
