Miles Kimball to Pay $95K to Settle Discrimination Lawsuit
An Oshkosh, Wis.-based catalog company has been ordered to pay $95,000 to settle a discrimination lawsuit. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) says Miles Kimball discriminated against a deaf worker. The EEOC says Laura Nejedlo asked to be trained in sign language for a new software program in 2007, but was turned down. Nejedlo says she was fired the next year, after 13 years with the company.
