The Justice Department announced today that it has reached a settlement with the City of North Las Vegas, Nevada to resolve allegations that the City violated the ADA by failing to accommodate, and constructively discharging, a Parks Department Maintenance Crew Leader with monocular vision. The Department alleged that the City unjustifiably revoked the employee's long standing reasonable accommodation, which exempted him from obtaining a Commercial Driver's License. The consent decree, which must be approved by the Court, requires the City to pay the employee compensatory damages, provide training on Title I of the ADA, and file periodic reports with the Department.
