EEOC: Dog kennel company forced employee to quit due to former addiction

Rover’s Place, a Northbrook, Illinois-based dog kennel company, violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when one of the company’s owners created a “hostile work environment,” asked about his medical history and forced him to quit due to his past opioid addiction, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleged in a release dated Oct. 1.  

The worker in question was not using drugs at the time of the incident and had not presented any workplace issues due to former drug use, the EEOC said.
