EEOC suit settled


Judge Blanche Manning entered a consent decree in U.S. District Court in Chicago, ending an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission religious discrimination lawsuit against Motorola. The EEOC alleged that in May 2000 Motorola failed to accommodate a request by two Muslim workers to leave work to attend prayer services and then fired them after they attended the services. The workers had been placed at a Motorola facility in Arlington Heights by a temporary agency. The consent decree requires the company to
pay the two $60,000.
