Training Day: McDonald's franchise to implement new disability training following HIV lawsuit

A McDonald’s franchise in Arkansas, USA, has paid $103,000 (£83,276) to settle a complaint brought by an employee fired for being HIV-positive – the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reports.

EEOC filed the lawsuit this summer on behalf of an unnamed employee. The complaint says that the worker was fired in February 2015 after confiding in a colleague that he was HIV-positive. This conduct is in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
