The Justice Department filed a lawsuit and consent decree in the Northern District of Ohio, alleging that the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction violated Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The consent decree resolves allegations that the state agency unlawfully failed to offer a day shift as a reasonable accommodation to a correctional officer with diabetes where it was medically necessary, and would not be an undue hardship.
For more information about the ADA, call the Department’s toll-free ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 (TDD 833-610-1264) or access the ADA website at ada.gov.
