WASHINGTON — The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Tuesday that Dillard’s Inc. has agreed to pay $2 million to settle a four-year-old class-action disability discrimination lawsuit.
The EEOC said the department store chain had a “long-standing national policy and practice” requiring that all employees disclose personal and confidential medical information when asking for sick leave, which is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
