Greater Washington JCC sued for discrimination


WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington is being sued for violating the Americans With Disabilities Act.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said July 20 that it is charging the Rockville, Md., center with demoting rather than accommodating an assistant nursery school teacher because of her disability, the Washington Jewish Week reported. 

The teacher, Carole Schulman, has a hearing impairment.

Michael Feinstein, the JCC’s chief executive officer, said July 20 that the JCC had no comment, as "We haven’t been filed with a lawsuit at this time."
