Fedex Accused of Discriminating Against the Deaf

October 14, 2014 in Advocacy & Access, Employment

 

 

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed a lawsuit charging that FedEx discriminated for years against deaf and partly deaf workers and applicants. The lawsuit was filed in United States District Court in Baltimore and announced on Friday. The E.E.O.C. says FedEx did not provide American Sign Language interpretation or closed-captioned training videos during mandatory tours and new-hire orientation or during staff and safety meetings. The lawsuit arose from 19 discrimination charges filed nationwide. FedEx says that it is committed to fair and equal treatment of employees and that the E.E.O.C.’s claims are misleading.

Restaurant for the deaf and hearing impaired opens in Toronto

July 15, 2014 in Community News, Employment, Hearing Loss & Deafness

 

 

AFP Relax – Wed, Jul 9, 2014
Article Source

Toronto has become the latest international city to adopt a growing restaurant trend that aims to raise awareness of the hearing-impaired by hiring deaf servers.

After San Francisco, San Antonio, Paris and the Gaza Strip, the largest city in Canada will be home to Signs Restaurant in the heart of the downtown core, where customers will have to place their order using sign language.

For customers who are sign language illiterate, an ASL cheat sheet will be available to help them sign for their meal, reported The Toronto Star. The menu is described as contemporary blend of Canadian and international cuisine.

The idea for a deaf restaurant was born when owner Anjan Manikumar was a manager at a pizza restaurant where one of his regular customers was hearing-impaired and ordering was a game of “point, nod and serve,” says the Star.

The experience inspired Manikumar to learn American Sign Language in an effort to communicate with his customer, and eventually to open a restaurant that would bridge the hearing and non-hearing community.

If the philosophy sounds familiar, it’s because a similar restaurant concept was launched to help raise awareness on visual impairments.

Created by a blind pastor from Zurich, Jorge Spielmann hosted dinner parties where guests supped blindfolded, at first in a show of solidarity with their host but also to better understand what it was to be blind.

But guests noted that the experience also heightened their sense of smell and taste, leading to the creation of restaurants like Dining in the Dark in the US, O. Noir in Canada and Dans le Noir in Paris.

Likewise, Mozzeria in San Francisco employs deaf staff, as does Atfaluna in Gaza, a charity restaurant for children with hearing disabilities, and Café Signes in Paris.

Signs in Toronto opens July 16.
