Dillard's Settles $2 Million Disability Discrimination Case

A major department store chain has settled a class-action lawsuit for requiring employees who take sick leave to report their medical conditions. The national retail chain Dillard's will pay $2 million to current and former employees who were told by supervisors to divulge protected medical information or be terminated. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigated and negotiated with Dillard's for years ahead of this settlement. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
