Werner Enterprises loses $36,000,000 lawsuit | #166

A Deaf driver applied to Werner after completing Roadmaster truck driving school.  Did you know Werner Enterprises owns Roadmaster?  Anyway, he got an exemption and passed his DOT physical, passed truck school and applied to Werner.  Werner said no thank you to him and he wasn’t having any of it.  I totally agree.  It would appear to me, who is not a lawyer, that the only reason Werner did not hire him is because he is Deaf.  As you know I am learning American Sign Language so he could come work with me.  He complained to the EEOC and after trying to reach a settlement they sued Werner and won.  They had a jury.  Attention:  I am not an attorney and this show is not legal advice or a legal opinion.  Seek a licensed attorney for legal advice.
