W.Pa. rehab center settles methadone firing suit – The York Daily Record

This is wonderful!  Although I wish it had gone to court, because she would have gotten more and it would have set a precedence–I am still thrilled that someone stuck up for their rights and put it to these “rehabs”.

PITTSBURGH—A suburban Pittsburgh drug treatment facility that fired a counselor who was on methadone is paying her $20,000 to settle a federal disability discrimination suit.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says Greenbriar Treatment Center in New Kensington fired the unidentified employee three years ago when it learned she’d been taking methadone.

The EEOC says the employee had a good performance record and had advised her superior that she was participating in a supervised recovery program for addicts.

The EEOC sued Greenbriar in June and announced the settlement Thursday. Greenbriar will also revise its anti-discrimination policies.
