B & H Foto and Electronics Corp., the enormous 9th Avenue photo mecca in Manhattan, will pay $4.3 million to settle a race discrimination lawsuit by the EEOC. The lawsuit alleged B & H paid Hispanic warehouse workers less than others, failed to promote them and denied them health benefits.
In addition to the cash settlement, B & H will provide anti-discrimination training, meet notice-posting requirements, adopt an anti-discrimination policy and submit to EEOC monitoring for five years.
