New York: An American firm will pay $100,000 to settle a discrimination lawsuit filed on behalf of an Indian-origin employee who was fired for seeking a transfer to care for his differently abled son.

Ashok Pai had worked at federal contractor Camber Corporation and was fired by the company, which replaced him with someone more than 20 years younger. The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission charged that Camber violated federal law when it denied Pai a transfer based on his son's condition.

Camber agreed to pay $100,000 and provide other relief to settle a disability and age discrimination lawsuit filed by the agency. PTI
