Casino Sued by EEOC For Not Extending Leave for Employee Who Had Stress-Anxiety Disorder

I don’t doubt that it is stressful working at a casino. And that as a result the employee doing that job might seek reasonable accommodation for stress anxiety.

According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a Detroit area casino failed to reasonably accommodate a pit manager in the table games department who requested an extension of leave for his stress-anxiety disorder, for which he previously had been hospitalized.

Rather than accommodate him, Greektown Casino refused his request and fired him, the EEOC charged in a lawsuit filed under the Americans With Disabilities Act on Tuesday.

This was straight out-and-out discrimination based on disability, the EEOC is alleging.
