On September 28, 2012, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) announced $188,500 settlement with Nash Finch, Co. to resolve allegations of hiring discrimination against female applicants. The news release can be found at: http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/ofccp/OFCCP20121871.htm#.UJPhmm_R4r4.
Following a Compliance Review, the OFCCP alleged that qualified women were not being given equal consideration for order selector positions at a distribution center in Lumberton, NC. A complaint was filed with the Labor Department’s Office of Administrative Law Judges November 30, 2010.
A settlement was reached that included a payment of $188,500 in back wages and interest to 84 women who were rejected for entry-level positions, job offerings for up to 12 women from the original class as order selector positions become available, and the submission of progress reports to the OFCCP for the next two years.
