Walgreens to pay diabetic who needed food fast and was fired

Walgreens to pay diabetic who needed food fast and was fired | diabetes and more | Scoop.it
Walgreens has agreed to pay $180,000 to a longtime South San Francisco cashier with diabetes who was fired in 2008 for grabbing and eating a $1.39 bag of chips to fend off an attack of low blood sugar, a federal civil rights agency said Wednesday. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced the settlement of a discrimination suit it filed on behalf of Josefina Hernandez, 57, who had worked for the nation's largest drugstore chain for almost 18 years. Walgreens agreed to a settlement after U.S. District Judge William Orrick rejected the company's attempt to dismiss the suit in April, saying Walgreens had not shown any other misconduct by Hernandez, and a jury should decide whether she was fired because of her disability.

Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

The FDA is making MannKind warn patients of possible bronchospasms for those with breathing conditions like asthma or COPD — chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It also wants the company to remain in close contact with physicians to gauge how the drug is performing. The FDA will also require more trials for treating children and assessment of possible pulmonary cancer risks.
