EEOC Settles Race Discrimination Lawsuit

     The EEOC recently settled a lawsuit for $50,000, which alleged that the defendants fired an African-American employee and demoted three other African-American employees because of their race.  The plaintiff alleged that the company’s manager told an African-American manager that the company wanted to “sprinkle a little salt” on the worksite  (meaning replacing black employees with “whites and Mexicans”).  The African-American manager was demoted just a few days later and replaced with a Hispanic manager.  The Hispanic manager fired three African-American employees and replaced them with a Hispanic and two Caucasian employees.  These alleged actions are a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  See EEOC v. OnSite Solutions, LLC, No. 5:15-cv-01066-C (W.D. Okla.).
