retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Bloomberg reports that “a Walmart store in Washington allegedly discriminated against two deaf employees by failing to provide them with American Sign Language interpreters and other accommodations, the U.S. government says.” The retailer has been sued by the “federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under federal disabilities bias law for allegedly failing to accommodate employees or job applicants with hearing difficulties.”

Other companies successfully sued by the EEOC under similar circumstances include McDonald’s and the Cheesecake Factory.
