EEOC v. TriCore Reference Labs

Date: March 30, 2012

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed suit against TriCore, alleging that the company had failed to make reasonable accommodations for a disabled employee; however, the agency pressed forward with its lawsuit knowing that the employee could not perform essential job functions, even with reasonable accommodations. Accordingly, the NFIB Legal Center filed an amicus brief in support of TriCore. We argued that EEOC had incurred liability for TriCore’s attorneys fees because it had advanced the case knowing that it had no claim.

Status: Pending - U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit
