Outback Steakhouse settles disability discrimination lawsuit

Outback Steakhouse has agreed to pay $65,000 to settle an EEOC disability discrimination lawsuit.

According to the EEOC, Outback fired a server named John Woods because of a traumatic brain injury that Woods had suffered.

Woods had worked successfully despite his disability under a previous manager, but when a new manager replaced the previous one, Woods was fired several days later.

EEOC Phoenix District Trial Attorney Nancy Griffiths said, “John Woods worked tirelessly to be a good server after suffering a traumatic brain injury. The ADA prohibits employers like Outback from firing individuals like John who add so much to the workplace.”
