Judge Stays Ruling in UPS Deaf-Driver Case

November 23, 2004

A federal judge on November 16 stayed his Oct. 21 ruling that UPS must give deaf and hearing-impaired workers the same opportunity as others to become truck drivers, according to an Associated Press story. The company can now appeal.U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson ruled on Oct. 21 that UPS violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by barring the hearing-impaired from driving its parcel delivery trucks under 10,000 lbs. The federal government bars the hearing impaired from operating trucks weighing more than 10,000 lbs. Henderson ordered the company to change its policy within 30 days. Yet the stay of his own ruling means the UPS policy will not be changed for years, if at all, pending the outcome of lengthy appeals, according to the report.
