Eclipse Advantage, Inc.—a transportation, logistics and distribution management company—has agreed to pay $60,000 to settle an EEOC racial harassment and retaliation lawsuit.

The EEOC complaint said Rodney Williams, a black employee, endured racial slurs, a demotion and termination at the company’s Aldi Food Service warehouse in Hinckley.

In addition to the monetary relief, the company agreed to train all management staff on em­­ployee rights and employer obligations under Title VII.

Note: Employers can’t afford racism. When employees face racial slurs and harassment, employers must intervene to stop it.
