Dollar Stores Pays More than One Dollar for Failure to Provide Accommodation to Dyslexic Employee

Recently, Dollar General Stores entered into a settlement with the EEOC based on a claim that it failed to accommodate an employee’s dyslexia. The employee was required to undertake computer based training followed by a written test. When the employee asked for help with the written test, his request was denied. Dollar Stores then demoted the employee when he refused to take the test without accommodation. Dollar Stores’ refusal to provide assistance cost it $47,000 (which could buy a lot of stuff at a Dollar Store).
