Sallard claimed Starbucks fired her after just three days on the job when she asked to stand on a stool behind the counter.
In May, the EEOC filed suit, alleging the coffee chain discriminated against Sallard based on her disability. Starbucks said it terminated Sallard because she couldn’t do her job without posing a danger to customers and co-workers.
The settlement agreement requires Starbucks to conduct ADA training for managers and supervisors at all of its El Paso stores. The training will focus on reasonable accommodations for disabled individuals.
