Greater Washington JCC sued for discrimination
The Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington is being sued for violating the American With Disabilities Act.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said July 20 that it is charging the Rockville, Md. center with demoting, rather than accommodating, an assistant nursery school teacher because of her disability, the Washington Jewish Week reported.
The teacher, Carole Schulman, has a hearing impairment.
Michael Feinstein, the JCCGW’s chief executive office, said Tuesday, “We haven’t been filed with a lawsuit at this time,” so he was unable to comment.
