A Letter No Employer Wants to Write–Ever

September 27th, 2011 by JBWK

When the EEOC settled a disability discrimination case on behalf of a now-deceased employee, Anne Whitledge, who died from brain cancer, it didn’t just get her family money.

The settlement included the typical money damages ($160,000 going to her estate), employer discrimination training, and injunctive relief prohibiting discrimination.

The unconventional part: the EEOC required the employer, Maxim Healthcare Services, to write a letter of condolence to the deceased employee’s children.
