retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Target Corp. reportedly will settle a discrimination suit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of a former employee for $95,000. The woman charged that Target had refused to transfer her to an open position because she had multiple sclerosis, and even disclosed her condition to another possible employer.

While Target denied the charges, it agreed to pay the settlement as well as provide training to employees and adhere to all the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
