A jury recently slammed Henry’s Turkey Service for $240,000,000the largest verdict in EEOC history, for exploiting intellectually disabled workers by, among other things, paying them only $65 dollars per month eviscerating turkeys on an assembly line. In an ADA case brought by the EEOC, an expert witness had testified that the company "took advantage of the workers … knowing that they would not likely be discovered because the workers were disabled."

However, it’s an early Thanksgiving for Henry – the EEOC just filed court papers in which it conceded that under the ADA the verdict must be reduced to $1.6 million. The ADA has a cap on damages: it limits compensatory and punitive damages to $50,000 if the company employs between 14 and 101 for 20 or more weeks during a calendar year.
