Philadelphia Disability Discrimination Attorney Reports on CEO Firing Over Breast Cancer Diagnosis

August 27th, 2012
breast cancer diagnosis

Tuesday Morning President and CEO, Kathleen Mason recently filed a disability discrimination suit with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in Dallas claiming she was fired from her 12 year position at Tuesday Morning because the Board of Trustees found out that she was battling breast cancer. Tuesday Morning executives claim that Mason was fired for cause after a shareholder complained about a decline in her professional performance.  Kathleen Mason and her discrimination attorneys argue that her breast cancer diagnosis and treatment are the reason for her firing.  Mason also claims that she was subjected to harassment by colleagues after a board member made offensive comments about the wig she wore after losing her hair from chemotherapy treatments.

New Jersey Discrimination Attorneys at Sidney L. Gold & Associates Advocate for Those Facing Disability Discrimination in the Workplace

The Pennsylvania & New Jersey disability discrimination attorneys at Sidney L. Gold & Associates are long time advocates for victims of discrimination in the workplace.  Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees based on disabilities and “perceived disabilities”, such as serious medical conditions that may require complicated or prolonged medical or surgical treatment. Under federal law, Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 bars private employers, state and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment. The New Jersey Law against Discrimination (NJLAD) makes discrimination based on race, sex, gender identification, religion, age, marital status, or disability illegal in the state of New Jersey.  Based on these laws, employers must make reasonable accommodations for workers who need time off for medical treatments or recovery. They must also ensure that employees at all levels are protected from harassment from supervisors and colleagues.

If you or someone you love has been treated unfairly or terminated because of a cancer diagnosis, other medical condition or a disability in New Jersey or Pennsylvania, the discrimination attorneys at Sidney L. Gold & Associates in Philadelphia can help you seek justice.  The laws regarding disability discrimination are strongly enforced in New Jersey and the experienced and competent disability discrimination attorneys at Sidney L. Gold & Associates can make sure that your rights and your job are protected.  If you have lost your job, been demoted, or have been harassed by supervisors or colleagues because of a disability, call our Philadelphia discrimination attorneys at 215-569-1999 or contact us online.
