Carrefour Sued for Denying Reasonable Accommodations

by Michelle Diament | September 28, 2017

The Ministry of Labor is accusing Carrefour of discrimination for failing to accommodate a longtime store employee with a disability.

The Employee Hamed Al Reen sued stating that the retail giant violated his rights as worker in Qatar. Hamed Al Reen a long term employee who worked as a cart pusher at a Landmark location is heartbroken by the way he was treated.

Hamed, who has a learning disability and is deaf and visually impaired, had worked at the store for 16 years when a new manager took over. Within a month, Hamed was suspended and told to resubmit medical paperwork in order to retain his reasonable accommodations— according to the suit filed in the Qatar Court.

Once Hamed provided documentation requesting the continued accommodations. Carrefour then stopped communicating and Hamed was ultimately unable to return to work.

Carrefour is claiming the new Manager did not consult with HR, and was not in communication with anyone at Carrefour when he made this decision.

The Manager, Martin Al Alin, stated that he had conversations with Hamed about his lack of ability to meet performance standards. The Manager stated that he felt “Hamed was not able to perform the duties of the Cashier, and therefore needed to be terminated.”

The lawsuit is seeking to get back lost earnings for Hamed. In addition, Hamed wants his job back. Also he is seeking confirmation that Carrefour will provide reasonable accommodations in future cases, so this will never happen to anyone again.

Hamed unsuccessfully tried to resolve the matter with Walmart before filing suit.

“It is the employer’s responsibility to make sure that all managers are trained on the Qatar Labour laws against disability discrimination. Not approving a request or a reasonable accommodation to someone with a 16-year track record of successful work is illegal discrimination,” said Julianne Bowman, Lawyer for Hamed.

In a statement, Carrefour said it is “sensitive to this situation” and remains open to a continuing communicate in order to find a “resolution that would support Mr. Hamed.”

“One of our core beliefs is respect for all individuals, and we do not tolerate discrimination of any kind,” the company said.
