Company Sued for Disability Discrimination and Retaliation

According to a release by the EEOC, a supervisor of the company disparaged a tour coordinator who, because of a physical impairment, had difficulty walking. Some of the remarks by the supervisor included "If you cannot walk straight, you cannot work at the hotel" and "You are selfish for making other people have to watch you limp."

The victim and a fellow employee complained of the harassment to the vice president but no corrective action was taken. To the contrary, both the victim and the fellow employee were harassed and discriminated further, to the point were they were forced to quit.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is suing on behalf of the plaintiff.
