Marion-based Mach Mining faces charges it has refused to hire women for coal mining positions since it began operating in 2006. According to the EEOC, several well-qualified female applicants have applied for positions at the mine, but none have been hired.
An EEOC lawsuit also alleges the company provides no bathrooms or changing facilities for women.
The mine employs 130 men in various coal extraction positions, but has never hired a woman. Barring a settlement, the matter will now go to trial in federal court.
