Insurance Claim Scenario
(It could have happened to you)

A Fort Wayne, Texas staffing agency found themselves in hot water: the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against them in regard to an alleged violation of federal law. The EEOC cited examples of race discrimination, as well as retaliation, whereby the agency did not refer older and African-American employee applicants for job assignments and punished those employees within the company that voiced objection to their actions. Furthermore, the EEOC contended that the staffing agency willfully violated the law by shredding work applications. The Fort Wayne company agreed to a settlement that required them to pay $580,000 to both employees and class members. In addition, they will also be required to disburse a maximum of $5,000 for administrative expenditures of the settlement.
