Perrysburg-based Renhill Staffing Services has agreed to pay more than $580,000 to settle an EEOC lawsuit alleging age and race discrimination.
The lawsuit accused the recruitment and temporary services firm of failing to refer blacks and people over age 40 for job openings. The EEOC also said Renhill destroyed employment applications and retaliated against employees who complained.
Rachel Wixey, Renhill division president, said the company settled only because its insurer urged it to end the costly legal defense. “It did not happen,” Wixey said.
