Product Fabricators, Inc. has been hit with its second federal discrimination lawsuit.
In 2009, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued the sheet-metal fabricator for requiring employees to report prescription medication use and then firing an employee for disclosing his prescription for Vicodin. The EEOC said the company wrongly perceived that the narcotic made him unfit for work.
Shortly after that lawsuit was filed, a second employee of the Pine City company was allegedly fired for inquiring about taking time off for surgery for a work-related injury. The most recent EEOC lawsuit contends that Product Fabricators filed the second employee partly because he provided information to the commission in the prior case.
