Minneapolis based Target Corp. has entered into a settlement to resolve a wrongful termination lawsuit filed by 16-year employee. The woman who filed the lawsuit has a diagnosed disability that made it difficult for her to keep track of time. While she worked at Target, other employees would routinely remind her when she failed to notice that it was time for her break.
But at some point, the store stopped accommodating her disability, according to the lawsuit. Target alleges that the woman was terminated because she was late returning from her lunch break on three occasions over the course of 18 months. One of these occasions was apparently an instance in which she was two minutes late returning. Target noted that it does not make any exceptions, even if an employee is only two minutes late.
