JPMorgan recently settled a pair of expensive disability discrimination suits.

A former employee of JPMorgan’s predecessor, Chase Manhattan Bank, alleged that the company paid him less, denied him promotions and fired him because of a speech impairment. He settled his claim for $200,000.

The second disability suit, which will cost the company $2.2 million, involved violations against 222 employees who weren’t accommodated following leaves of absence.

The company was also the subject of demonstrations protesting racial, religious and gender discrimination by the contractors that provide cleaning services.
