Goshen-based Supreme Corporation, the nation’s leading truck body manufacturer, has agreed to pay $427,000 to settle a race discrimination lawsuit with the EEOC and seven former employees.
The lawsuit claimed a plant manager in the company’s Woodburn, OR, plant harassed, demoted and forced out Hispanic workers because of their national origin, in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
As part of the settlement, Supreme Corporation also will review its policies, provide anti-harassment training for managers and employees and report to the EEOC for three years on its handling of all harassment and retaliation complaints.
