The EEOC's Boston area office sued The Salvation Army on September 30, 2005 in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire. The EEOC's complaint alleged that The Salvation Army violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when it discriminated against a potential employee based on his disability (mental). The parties entered into a consent decree on October 6, 2005 which stipulated that the defendant would pay $5,000 in damages, revise and distribute its EEO policy, post a notice of compliance with the ADA, provide ADA compliance training for its managerial staff, revise its complaint resolution procedure, provide training for its complaint resolution procedure, implement an internship program with the special education programs at local high schools, and appoint a manager to act as a liason to a job coaching agency of the defendant's choice. Following the entry of the consent decree, the EEOC filed a motion for contempt against the defendant. On July 19, 2006, the parties stipulated to the dismissal of that motion and entered an agreement that clarified the content of the parties' original consent decree.
