Envelope-maker Williamhouse of Pennsylvania settled a lawsuit with three supervisors who claimed they were underpaid because they are black.
Payroll records showed that salaries for white shift supervisors with similar responsibilities ranged from $32,000 to $58,101, while the three black supervisors earned between $32,000 and $46,592.
The company admitted no wrongdoing, attributing the pay scales to a former plant owner. But it agreed to create a policy that prohibits racial discrimination, provide training for supervisors in its Fayette County plant and outline procedures for dealing with future allegations.
