Starbucks pays $75,000 to settle dwarf barista's lawsuit
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Starbucks in May for firing Elsa Sallard, who is a dwarf, after she asked for a stool to perform her job at an El Paso, Texas, Starbucks. The lawsuit stated that Starbucks fired Sallard after three days of training because it deemed she'd pose a danger to customers and co-workers. The EEOC contends Starbucks' actions violated the Americans With Disabilities Act. || Read "Former barista awarded $75,000 in Starbucks lawsuit"
