Judge: Discrimination against Deaf Applicant

An Arizona judge says a Phoenix company discriminated against a deaf job applicant, according to the EEOC. He ruled yesterday that Creative Networks did not accommodate Rochelle Duran because the company refused to pay for interpreting services beyond $200 for its orientation and training. Ironically, Creative Networks is an subsidiary of ResCare, Inc. which provides services to disabled clients.
