New York City -- The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission settled a lawsuit with Target Corp. regarding the rights of a disabled cart attendant in California's Orange County, the Associated Press reported.
Court papers filed on Tuesday reveal that Target agreed to pay former employee Jeremy Schott $160,000 and develop policies to respond to disabled employees' needs, the report said.
The EEOC alleged in a 2009 lawsuit that Target failed to ensure the presence of a job coach for Schott, who suffers from cerebral palsy, and reduced his work hours at the company's Foothill Ranch store after he went on a medical leave due to a seizure.
