Propak Logistics, an Arkansas-based freightcompany, has drawn the ire of the EEOC, which is suing the firm for refusing to hire applicants who weren’t Hispanic for nonmanagement positions at its plant in Shelby.
The EEOC’s lawsuit claims the company would hire Hispanic workers almost exclusively, even if better-qualified workers of other heritages applied. The alleged discriminatory acts occurred between Oct. 1, 2002, and June 30, 2004.
When attempts to conciliate an initial complaint failed, the EEOC filed suit in federal court.
Note: Refusing to hire qualified workers based on ethnicity or national origin violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Employers may not pigeonhole employees based on their race, ethnicity, gender, religion or national origin.
