In September 2004, the EEOC district office in San Antonio, Texas brought this suit against the Spherion Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. The complaint contains the allegations of two deaf people claiming the defendant discriminated against them by not hiring and not reasonably accommodating them in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The defendant moved for summary judgment, but the motion was denied. On the eve of trial, the parties came to terms in August of 2006.

In the consent decree, the defendant agreed to (1) not discriminate on the basis of disability; (2) pay all aggrieved persons a total of $78,300; (3) retain and revise its current reasonable accommodation policy; (4) provide no less than four hours of ADA training to all of its managers and employees involved in training and recruitment; (5) post jobs in ways accessible to the deaf or hearing impaired; (6) provide a means of communicating with deaf job applicants for the purpose of interviews. The terms of the agreement were to run for 2 years. The docket sheet does not show any further enforcement took place; the case was presumably closed in 2008.
