File this one under "ironic." Solano County (Calif.) disability services provider Pace Solano agreed to pay $130,000 to a job candidate who disclosed a partial paralysis in her hand during a pre-employment physical exam. The company refused to hire her because of her hand situation.

She had applied for the job at the en­couragement of a Pace Solano em­­ployee who thought she would work well with their clientele, who are peo­­ple with developmental disabilities.

The EEOC filed the suit on her behalf.
