The consent decree resolves a lawsuit filed by the EEOC alleging that the company that provides logical services to the refrigerated and frozen food markets violated the Americans with Disability Act by refusing to hire Harvel.

A call was made to the company but an employee said the company's owner was not in the office and that no one else was authorized to comment.
