Cold Spring Harbor-based Vamco Sheet Metal faces an EEOC sex discrimination lawsuit resulting from its work on an expansion on the campus of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice between 2009 and 2011.
According to the lawsuit, the company treated women assigned to the job by the Sheet Metal Workers’ International Union Local 28 much differently than male workers.
The EEOC claims the company fired every one of the women, often within a few days. The EEOC lawsuit alleges that Vamco monitored the length of the women’s bathroom breaks and refused a nursing mother a place to pump breast milk.
The EEOC filed suit after attempting to resolve the dispute through its conciliation process. The suit seeks to recover past wages for all women who were fired, as well as injunctive relief.
Note: The EEOC will prosecute sex discrimination even in fields traditionally dominated by men. Relying on old stereotypes will simply land employers in court.
