As one of the largest investment
According to a lawsuit filed by the EEOC, Barbara Alexander applied for a position as a financial planning manager with Vanguard. She holds a master’s degree in finance and has financial planning experience. Throughout the interview process, she was told she was well qualified for the position.
Nevertheless, Vanguard later sent her a letter claiming her lack of a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) credential disqualified her from the position.
But EEOC investigators found that Vanguard filled the position with a white applicant who also lacked the CFP credential and had no financial planning experience. The EEOC attempted to conciliate the dispute, but failed.
Vanguard will now have to defend its actions in federal court.
