Sprouts Farmers Market pays $280,000 to settle lawsuits
Phoenix-based Sprouts Farmers Market will pay out $280,000 to settle three Colorado lawsuits filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and one of the plaintiffs.
The lawsuits allege Sprouts managers denied employment in Colorado and failed to make reasonable accommodations for applicants who had requested American Sign Language interpreter assistance. Such alleged conduct violates the Americans with Disabilities act.
Other parts of the settlement include Sprouts being required to revise its ADA policies, provide ADA training and send letters of apology.
