A corporate employee of Wells Fargo filed suit alleging that the bank failed to transfer him to a new position after a stroke left him unable to perform his original job. LVBH lawyers Jean Hyams and Rebecca Kagin represented the employee. This is not the first case where Wells Fargo was sued for refusing to transfer an employee to an alternate position as a form of reasonable accommodation. In fact, the leading case on this issue of law is named Jensen v. Wells Fargo. That case, which came down in December of 2000, makes clear that employees who need a new position as a result of their disability should not be forced to complete for the position and that the employer has an affirmative obligation to help locate an appropriate alternate position.
