Description: Milwaukee, Wisconsin civil litigation lawyers represented Defendant accused of violating the Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA") accused of violating the act by refusing to provide in-home caregiving services to an individual with human immunodeficiency virus (“HIV”).
Helping Hands offers in-home caregiving services in nine counties throughout Northeastern Wisconsin, with its main office in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The United States had alleged that a number of Helping Hands caregivers refused to provide service to an individual with HIV and that Helping Hands terminated the relationship with that individual as a result.
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office prioritizes the protection of the civil rights of all individuals,” said United States Attorney Haanstad. “As this settlement demonstrates, our office is committed to using all available tools to enforce the ADA and prevent discrimination.”
Assistant United States Attorney Maura Flaherty represented the government in this matter. The settlement agreement states allegations only; the defendant does not admit liability for the allegations.
Outcome: Settled for $10,000.
