Wisconsin Veteran Set to Challenge the FBI in Disability Discrimination Claim
On Monday in Alexandria, Virginia, a trial will begin in a case filed by Justin Slaby, an Oak Creek, Wisconsin native against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) who he claims discriminated against him on the basis of his disability (amputation) when he was turned down for a job as an FBI agent because the FBI claims Slaby cannot safely perform several tasks required of an agent. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a nicely-written article on the case which has several huge potential implications for disabled workers in the outcome. Definitely a case to watch.
