News Anchor Has Stroke On-Air, Settles Discrimination Suit
A former new anchor has settled a discrimination lawsuit with his former employer. The complaint alleged the anchor had an on-air stroke and was replaced after he recovered. The employee claimed this discrimination was based on his medical condition. The anchor worked at the station for 20 years prior to his employment ending with the station. The terms of the settlement are unknown at this time, and both sides appear to be fairly closed lipped about the settlement. According to both sides, the anchor wasn't initially terminated after his stroke, but his wages were cut. Also, he received less air time, which led to the suit.
Employee discrimination based on a medical condition is a cause of action, and employees can bring suit against the employer for discrimination based on a medical condition. In this case, the employee wasn't terminated, but his wages were cut. Eventually he was let go from the station. Many of the details of the case are unknown because of the settlement.
