The company should pay 63-year-old Lori Jacobs (who lives with both cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis) roughly $1 million for its violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the jurors in U.S. District Court decided. The company told pharmacists in 2016 they would all need to give injections, which Jacobs' medical conditions prevented. The verdict came amid a national uproar about the company's recent decision to get rid of its greeter positions; greeters with physical disabilities worried this decision would leave them without jobs.
