EEOC charges LAFD with discrimination—Again

The EEOC has brought new charges against the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD), charging it with subjecting black and female firefighters to a “pattern and practice” of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. The EEOC sent the department a letter suggesting it work on reaching an acceptable settlement with two employees.

It’s not the first time the department has been under fire, so to speak. In fact, it has paid more than $13 million to settle other cases in the past year. And the letter comes weeks after the LAFD agreed to pay a black firefighter $1.5 million to settle a discrimination and retaliation lawsuit in which he alleged colleagues spiked a plate of spaghetti with dog food at a firehouse dinner.
