A Letter No Employer Wants to Write–Ever

The settlement included the typical money damages ($160,000 going to her estate), employer discrimination training, and injunctive relief prohibiting discrimination.

The unconventional part: the EEOC required the employer, Maxim Healthcare Services, to write a letter of condolence to the deceased employee’s children.
