Texas Suit over Accommodations

A East Texas man is suing his former employer. Steven White says Broadway Home Center in Tyler violated ADA law by not accommodating his disability. White says he suffered hearing loss during his time working for the company as a salesman but he was not given a telephone that he could use and was insulted by his superior for his difficulty hearing. He eventually quit when he was criticized for failing to a complete a job because he couldn't fully understand the instructions.
