American Dental Association pays $1.95 million to resolve retaliation case

2017-04-21

EEOC found reasonable cause to believe that the American Dental Association’s (ADA) former chief legal counsel and the Director of HR were discharged in retaliation for complaining about potential violations of federal anti-discrimination laws.  The two managers bought their concerns to the board of directors about possible discrimination under Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

As part of the two-year conciliation agreement the ADA will also take proactive measures to prevent discrimination and retaliation and conduct training on these employment laws.  Additionally, a notice of EEOC’s findings and the conciliation agreement will be posted and visible to all employees.
