BNSF Railway sues EEOC over disability bias complaints

BNSF Railway Co has filed a lawsuit claiming the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission improperly authorized more than 50 workers and job applicants to sue the company for disability discrimination.

BNSF said the 54 right-to-sue letters the EEOC issued in March were based on a faulty charge filed by former Commissioner Stuart Ishimaru in 2012.
