“Under the terms of the two-year consent decree settling the case, Wendy's will pay $41,500 in relief to a person who applied to a job with the company, but was denied despite his qualifications. “In addition, Wendy's has agreed to provide training for all managers and supervisory employees, including its company president, on the ADA. The training will include a discussion related to hiring individuals with disabilities. In addition, the training will include a specific instruction on communication devices, such as the use of the Texas Relay System or video relay service regarding communication between Wendy's employees and applicants with hearing impairments.’“
