EEOC Says Monsanto Discriminated Against Former Employee

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI--A former employee of Monsanto Co. will receive $5,000 under a settlement agreement reached with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the St. Louis Business Journal reported Wednesday.

The employee, who was not named in the news report, was terminated from his job in 2001 when his disability kept him from performing his job duties standing up. The EEOC claimed that the company discriminated against the man by not providing a reasonable accommodation so he could continue to work.

Under the agreement, Monsanto will provide training on the Americans with Disabilities Act to supervisors, managers and human resources personnel in that worker's department. For the next year, the company will also track and report on how it handles all requests for accommodations from workers with disabilities in the department.
