Tyson Foods Settles EEOC Disability Discrimination Lawsuit

Author DavidMalloy , 3/30/2012
PMC Insurance GroupSt Louis, MO – Tyson Foods, Inc., one of the world’s largest processors of chicken, beef and pork, will pay $35,000 and furnish other relief to settle a disability discrimination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the agency announced today.

The EEOC had charged that Tyson Foods refused to hire a former employee because he had epilepsy.   The EEOC lawsuit filed in May 2010 (EEOC v. Tyson Foods, Inc., Case No. 2:10-cv-04072-NKL) alleged that Tyson failed to hire Mark White for an open maintenance job in its Sedalia, Mo., plant because he had epilepsy and that Tyson’s refusal to hire White violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). White’s epilepsy had been controlled by medication for twelve years and he had been previously employed by Tyson on two occasions during this time period. However, Tyson instituted a new medical assessment procedure since last hiring White, and refused to hire him because he did not pass a medical evaluation required for applicants with epilepsy to determine whether he could safely perform the job. The doctor who performed the evaluation for Tyson did not examine White, but relied on outdated medical research in determining that he could not safely perform the job. At the same time, Tyson employed several other persons with epilepsy who had been grandfathered in.

Besides agreeing to pay White $35,000 as back pay and compensatory damages, Tyson agreed to institute a new assessment procedure for similar cases. Henceforth, an applicant who is disqualified from employment because of Tyson’s required medical assessment has the right to a second medical assessment at the applicant’s expense. Further, an independent and determinative third medical assessment will be made for any applicant not hired after the second assessment. The consent decree settling the suit, which must be approved by U.S. District Judge Nanette Laughrey, also provides for injunctive relief, including training to individuals involved in the assessment procedure, posting notification to employees, and compliance reporting to the EEOC.

“The potentially three-step medical assessment process agreed to by the parties is an extraordinary step in the right direction in terms of making sure disabled employees are given a full and fair opportunity to compete in the workplace,” said EEOC attorney Melvin Kennedy.

EEOC Regional Attorney Barbara Seely said, “While the terms of the consent decree only affect Tyson’s Sedalia facility, Tyson employs more than 117,000 people at more than 400 facilities and offices, and we are hopeful that the process we have agreed to works well enough that Tyson adopts it in other facilities.”

Worker hurt as crane cable snaps at World Trade Center

Workers at the World Trade Center got a scare Thursday when a crane’s cable snapped and sent a load of steel crashing down. The crane operator was slightly injured when the metal plunged as many as 40 stories onto a flatbed truck, police sources said. “We’re lucky no one died,” said one hardhat, who was evacuated with other workers to nearby Zuccotti Park while investigators combed through the scene.

An ironworker who had been working on Building 4, where the accident occurred, said after the load fell “the scene was chaos.”
“Everybody was running to see if they could help,” said the ironworker, who declined to give his name. “Suddenly there was a lot of noise and everybody ran for cover.”
The noise startled occupants of the nearby buildings — many of whom harbor horrific memories of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
“We came out because someone heard a boom,” said one woman, nervously smoking outside the Brooks Brothers store on Church St. “It brought back bad memories.”
The accident happened just before 10 a.m. near Building 4 near Church and Cortlandt Sts. toward the southeast corner of the 16-acre site, sources said.
“The load was almost all the way to the top,” the ironworker said.
Then, he said, “it started free-falling down.”
A puff of smoke rose when it landed, the ironworker said.
“Then the main load line came down with it,” he added.

The crane operator, whose name was not immediately available, refused medical treatment and was being questioned by investigators. Police sealed off the area as inspectors looked over the crane and questioned witnesses.
