This recent settlement highlights the importance of understanding and complying with the ADA and Title VII

A large settlement payout by the employer in this case could have been avoided by understanding and complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The employer should have taken steps to provide reasonable accommodations. Instead, it terminated the employee after he requested reasonable accommodations. Let's hope this settlement prevents further violations of the disability and discrimination laws.
