U.S. Court of Appeals: USPS Did Enough to Accommodate Clerk Robbed On-Job at Gunpoint

“Henrietta Simpson was robbed at gunpoint when working at a branch of the United States Postal Service. After the robbery, USPS allowed the severely distressed Simpson to work temporarily at a window equipped with protective glass, installed protective glass at her usual station, and always scheduled a coworker to work with her. Simpson later sued USPS after she reported that these measures were insufficient primarily because the person working with her would leave the room at times and USPS did not do more to accommodate her anxiety. The district court entered summary judgment for USPS, ruling that no reasonable jury could conclude that USPS had not reasonably accommodated Simpson‚Äôs presumed disability. We affirm.”

    Question: Who represented this employee, or was she a Non-Union member that management knew was a good example to teach others about Worker’s Compensation cases? Scare them into not filing claims, Bingo!
