Employee With Bipolar Disorder Wins Discrimination Case | World of Psychology

This is really good news. The company involved here simply fired the young man because he was open about his condition. Not so fast said the judge!

Judge Edward Shea of the US District Court for Eastern Washington agreed with Reilly that he was fired for his bipolar disorder — not for the half-dozen different rationales Cottonwood Financial had given. The judge said such rationales were merely a pretext for their discrimination.

Reilly received $6,500 in back wages, plus an additional $50,000 for emotional pain and suffering.
