Wyomissing-based industrial fastener and tool maker SFS Intec has agreed to settle an EEOC discrimination lawsuit arising at a plant in Ohio. Two Hispanic employees complained of being denied training opportunities that were open to non-Hispanics.
The two workers, natives of Puerto Rico, told the EEOC that they were often targeted with ethnic slurs and were the only workers terminated during a July 2007 reduction in force.
Under the agreement, SFS Intec will pay the two former workers $245,000 and train supervisors about Title VII of the Civil Rights Act’s provisions concerning national-origin discrimination.
