Robert Reilly v. Lehigh Valley Hospital

Articles Discussing Case:

Dishonest response on an initial application can come back to haunt an employee.

Ogletree Deakins • April 08, 2013
In a non-precedential opinion, the 3d U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently upheld a hospital’s firing of a security guard who had admitted that he was a recovering drug addict. Because that firing was based upon the fact that the employee previously had denied prior drug or alcohol addition/treatment, the court found that the hospital’s reason for the termination – the employee’s dishonest disclosure – was not a pretext for discrimination. Reilly v. Lehigh Valley Hospital, 3d Cir., No. 12-2078, March 29, 2013.
