OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha nonprofit that helps blind people find jobs faces another discrimination lawsuit.
Glen Moss is suing his former employer Outlook Nebraska Inc., saying blind workers are blocked from filling supervisory positions and that sighted workers
are treated better.
Moss is legally blind. His lawsuit was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Omaha. It's similar to a lawsuit filed in October by the National Federation
of the Blind of Nebraska Inc.
Outlook Nebraska Eric Stueckrath has said the allegations had been deemed unfounded by the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission.
According to its website, Outlook Nebraska promotes employment for the blind and produces paper products for government entities.
