According to the EEOC’s complaint, the company hasn’t hired any female applicants for laborer and operator jobs since 2005.
The EEOC attempted to resolve the dispute through its conciliation process, but those efforts failed. The EEOC’s lawsuit seeks job offers for women who unsuccessfully applied to work at Presrite. In addition, the commission wants the women to receive damages, lost wages and benefits they would have received had they been hired.
Workplace discrimination filings with the EEOC rose to an unprecedented level of nearly 100,000 during fiscal year 2010.
Note: Employers that exclude applicants based on gender or any other protected characteristic are begging for a class-action lawsuit. Make sure jobs are awarded based purely on ability.
