The lawsuit was filed by the commission on behalf of Elsa Sallard, who claimed she was fired from her job as a barista because she is a dwarf.
According to a press release from the commission, Sallard told employers during a training that she could use a stool or stepladder to do her job.
“The manager at the El Paso Starbucks location disregarded Sallard’s request,” the release said. “On the same day that Sallard requested the accommodation, Starbucks terminated her employment, claiming that she would pose a ‘danger’ to customers and employees.”
