EEOC sues Johns Hopkins Home Care Group

Johns Hopkins Home Care Group Inc. has been sued by the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission.

The EEOC said Thursday its suit charges the Baltimore-based home health care provider violated the Americans With Disabilities Act when it fired an employee because of her disability – she was being treated for breast cancer  – and because she challenged the company’s failure to accommodate her.

The EEOC said Ray Ellen Fisher, a registered nurse, was terminated in retaliation for her having filed a discrimination charge with the federal anti-discrimination agency. The company is owned and operated by the Johns Hopkins Health System and Johns Hopkins University, the EEOC said.
