The Papermoon Strip Club in Stuart will pay $95,000 to two black doormen and several white employees to settle complaints of racial discrimination, harassment and retaliation.
According to the EEOC, the doormen were subjected to racial slurs and segregated from white employees. White employees who complained about the discrimination were retaliated against.
The club’s owners agreed to a 30-month consent decree that requires publicizing the settlement in the workplace, providing anti-discrimination training to managers and reporting any further complaints to the EEOC.
Note: Racial slurs have no place in the workplace. They’re often symptomatic of ongoing discrimination. If you hear a racial slur, it should be a clarion call to corrective action. It’s only a matter of time before minority workers get sick of being called names and file a complaint. Stop epithets as soon as they start.
