Walmart has been ordered to pay a former employee with Down syndrome over $125 million after a jury found that the retailer failed to provide her with appropriate disability accommodations.
The decision from a Green Bay, Wis. jury late last week comes in a lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of Marlo Spaeth who has Down syndrome and worked at a Walmart store for about 16 years.
