Suit: Firing ADA Violation

A deaf woman in Texas is suing the state for firing her. Cecelia J. Garrett claims the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services violated ADA law by denying her an interpreter for training to start her position. She was supposed to start work with the State Supported Living Center in Denton in April of last year, but that was put off until May. Garrett says the original promise of a day shift turned into a night shift. Her request to switch was denied and she filed an EEOC complaint. Within days of the filing, she was dismissed.
