When female workers sought temporary jobs at a warehouse, they were told that the temp agency, Los Angeles-based Industrial Labor Management Group (ILM), was only hiring men for the positions.
The women complained to the EEOC, which is now suing the firm for sex discrimination. ILM has operations in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties. The EEOC alleges that ILM not only refused to refer qualified female applicants to its client, a film manufacturer called Manuli Stretch, but actually referred men who lacked the minimum requirements for the positions.
The EEOC’s suit seeks back pay, compensatory and punitive damages, hiring relief and an injunction against future discrimination.
