A woman was fired from her temporary job assignment at a medical facility and was denied a full-time permanent position because of her relationship to a person with disabilities—her toddler daughter. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a lawsuit on her behalf. (EEOC v. New Mexico Orthopaedics Associates)
