Walgreens employees file race discrimination lawsuit

More than 20 current and former employees from Florida and Missouri have filed an EEOC race-discrimination suit against Illinois-based Walgreens. They claim the company makes store assignments based on race, steering black managers and pharmacists to low-performing stores and stores in black communities, and denying them promotions.

Walgreens employs roughly 26,000 workers in Florida.

The drugstore chain already faces a pending discrimination suit for similar offenses against five Florida employees. The company vigorously denies the charges.
