Oracle Transportation Settles ADA Lawsuit For $30,000
Oracle Transcription Company pays $30,000 to settle a disability discrimination lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") on behalf of Mary Bobik. According to published documents, Oracle denied Bobik a position as a full-time medical transcription editor even though she was well qualified. Oracle’s supervisor told Bobik that they didn’t want to stress her out with the responsibilities of a full-time position, even though she had worked at Oracle Transcription for 20 years and was regularly assigned to work more than 60 hours a week as a part-time editor.
In a case like this it is easy to prove a violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act ("ADA") because Bobik had nearly 20 years as a medical transcriptionist and as an editor. Additionally she was physically capable and willing to perform the duties. Instead of giving her the job another person with less qualifications was given it. This is a violation of the ADA and I am glad to see Bobik get compensation from the company.
