UPS has decided to settle a class-action employment discrimination suit brought against the company on behalf of deaf and hearing-impaired workers. The plaintiffs claim that they were denied opportunities for advancement to managerial positions. They also claim that the company excluded them from training sessions and other company events by failing to provide an interpreter. Under the settlement, UPS agreed to make changes that would improve the conditions of deaf workers and plaintiffs will receive as much as $60,000 each. UPS has yet to settle the issue of whether they will drop their hearing requirement for van and delivery truck drivers.
