Do You Know the Potential ADA Pitfalls in Your Hiring Process?

January 23, 2013

Rochelle Duran, who is hearing impaired, applied for a direct support professional position with Creative Networks. She requested a sign language interpreter for orientation and pre-employment training sessions, which were a required portion of the application process. Creative Networks agreed to provide an interpreter, but only up to a cost of $200, and suggested that Duran find a friend or relative to interpret for any sessions over that cost. Unfortunately, $200 was insufficient to cover even one session of the orientation and training, and Duran was unable to provide another interpreter. Although Duran attended the orientation and training, the information was presented mostly verbally and she was unable to understand much of the material.
