Schroeder Quoted on McDonald’s EEOC Settlement

19 October 2016 Corporate Counsel News

Partner Don Schroeder was quoted in a Corporate Counsel article, “McDonald’s Settles With EEOC for Denying Deaf Job Applicant an Interpreter,” on October 19, 2016. The article discussed a lawsuit by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against McDonald’s Corp. after the restaurant canceled an interview when management discovered the applicant was deaf and needed a sign-language interpreter.

Schroeder said this is a reminder that applicants, not just employees, are included in many federal labor laws. He was quoted saying, “The big takeaway from this is that the EEOC – and the Department of Labor and the National Labor Relations Board – have put a hyper-focus upon the inception of employment as a key juncture for determining whether or not an employer dotted the I’s and crossed the T’s under whatever laws were within their jurisdiction.”
