EEOC sues home for failure to comply with agreement

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has charged a North Carolina nursing home for failing to pay a settlement to a disabled employee.

The government agency says Green Manor Rest Home Inc. had settled charges it discriminated against a disabled employee, violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. The agreement said Green Manor would pay $85,876 over a six-month period to the former employee. Green Manor also agreed to other provisions, including training for all employees on the ADA.

The nursing home only made two of the required monthly payments, and still owes $57,250, the EEOC says. It also did not complete any of the additional provisions.

EEOC's new lawsuit requests Green Manor to pay the remaining fees and comply with the other terms of the conciliation agreement.

Green Manor is an 82-bed facility and is located in Parkton, NC. A facility spokeswoman declined to comment.
