The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has settled a disability discrimination suit with RockTenn CP, LLC, formerly known as Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation. The company allegedly violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by wrongly placing an employee who needed back surgery on short-term disability, then firing him several months later. The employee had been cleared by his doctor to return to work.
