The EEOC has sued Digital Cable and Communications South, a Parma-based cable TV installation company, for allegedly refusing to hire female applicants for cable technician jobs.
The agency sued on behalf of a woman who claimed she was better qualified than male applicants who were hired, but was turned down because she is female.
