Walmart has been found to repeatedly fire employees with disabilities instead of offering reasonable accommodations

It turns out Walmart has a pattern of firing, not accommodating, and cutting hours of employees with disabilities.

A woman from Wisconsin recently filed a lawsuit after working for the corporation for 16 years before being fired.

A lawyer then found the same thing had happened to other employees with disabilities in Wisconsin according to CNBC, as well as many other in different states.

One person was awarded $5 million in damages.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has taken on Walmart in court claiming instead of providing reasonable accommodations for one employees disabilities, they fired them.

A federal jury agreed, and found Walmart had violated federal law.

Walmart was ordered to pay $125 million before a judge reduced the amount to $300,000 which is the highest amount allowed by law.
