Boda Plumbing of Monroe has agreed to pay $18,500 to Anthrone Cunningham to settle an EEOC racial discrimination lawsuit.
Before settling, Boda Plumbing asked the court to consider that Cunningham has “an extensive criminal record including multiple convictions related to fraud in employment matters.”
U.S. District Judge Frank Whitney ruled that Cunningham’s criminal record was “certainly scandalous, but … also irrelevant to the question of whether he suffered racially discriminatory behavior.”
As part of the settlement, Boda agreed to provide a positive reference letter to Cunningham and to adopt a formal anti-discrimination policy.
