Staffing agency client may be liable for not hiring deaf temps
from Bloomberg BNA
A mobile phone repair and testing facility in Texas must face trial on claims by the EEOC that the company illegally failed to hire or accommodate two deaf applicants for temporary work referred by a staffing agency, a federal judge ruled. The decision is one step toward a potential victory for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in its continuing crackdown on businesses it believes hire temporary workers through staffing agencies to evade federal employment discrimination laws.
