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.
