Company Failed to Accommodate Employee and Terminated Her Within Days of Learning of Her Medical Diagnosis, Federal Agency ChargesLOS ANGELES –  The U.S. Equal Employ­ment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed suit today charging that Time Warner Cable and Charter Communications, DBA Spectrum, Inc. violated federal discrimination law by refusing to accommodate an employee with a disability and firing her days after learning of her diagnosis. According to the EEOC’s lawsuit, Time Warner Cable initially granted the employee unpaid leave when she requested an accommodation to seek medical attention for her disability. The EEOC alleges that once Time Warner Cable learned of the employee’s disability diagnosis, they failed to provide her additional unpaid leave so that she could undergo treatment for her medical condition.
