Warner Employee Says Migraines Got Her Fired

     (CN) – Warner Bros. fired a woman who sought reasonable disability accommodations, she claims in court, noting a history of migraine headaches and back pain.
     Esperanza Evans filed the 15-page complaint Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court against Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.; Warner Bros. Television; WB Studio Enterprises Inc.; and her supervisor there.
     The Burbank studio allegedly hired Evans on April 2, 2011, and Evans says that, during her employment, her “disabilities limited her ability to perform her job duties without reasonable accommodation.”
     This past October, Warner Bros. fired the LA-based Evans in retaliation over her request for reasonable disability accommodations, according to the complaint.
     Evans seeks punitive damages for discrimination, defamation and emotional distress.
     She is represented by Michael Eisenberg with Eisenberg & Associates.
     Though the complaint does not say what Evans did at Warner, her executive profile on Variety’s website describes her as an administrator.
