This settlement will resolve charges filed by three former Lowe’s employees accusing the company of violating the ADA by terminating their employment. They brought the lawsuits on behalf of themselves and a Class of employees whose medical leave of absence exceeded Lowe’s 180-day (and subsequently, 240-day) maximum leave policy.
Lowe’s denies the allegations but has agreed to settle thelawsuit to avoid the expense and uncertainty of ongoing litigation.
