Elsewhere in the Courts: Discrimination

In a settlement with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a company that fuels planes at airports has agreed to pay $1.9 million to black and Hispanic employees who claim they were discriminated against. Though the company admitted no wrongdoing, it also agreed to conduct sensitivity and diversity training as part of the agreement. According to the EEOC, company employees waved KKK membership cards at black and Hispanic employees. Also, nooses and drawings of swastikas were common, and Hispanic employees were forced to ride in the back of shuttle buses. One employee, Francisco Ochoa, went to his manager to complain about the discrimination. Ochoa saw himself drawn in a racially offensive cartoon that had been placed under glass on the manager’s desk.
