Former University of Oregon employee sues, says she was fired because of migraine disability

January 5th, 2015

 A former University of Oregon employee has filed a $900,000 lawsuit, claiming she was wrongly fired after taking medical leave to deal with migraine headaches.
Laura A. Gerards says she was fired because of the disability.
She had asked for "reasonable accommodation" but was fired in April from her job at the Erb Memorial Union's craft center.
The Register-Guard reports the lawsuit was filed last week in Lane County Circuit Court.
University spokeswoman Julie Brown said no one was available Friday to comment.
