On December 23, 2013, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) announced a settlement of nearly $325,000 with Cream-O-Land Inc. to resolve allegations of sex and race discrimination affecting 227 applicants. The news release can be found at: http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/ofccp/OFCCP20132307.htm.
Following a Compliance Review by the OFCCP, it was determined that Cream-O-Land’s hiring process resulted in discrimination against women, African Americans, and Asian Americans that applied for warehouse positions in 2010 at the dairy plant in Florence, NJ. The terms of the conciliation agreement require Cream-O-Land to pay $324,288 in back wages, interest, and benefits to the class, along with making 24 job offers to members of the class as positions become available. The contractor has also agreed to pay a minimum of $10,000 for training to ensure compliance as part of the extensive self-monitoring measures they will adopt.
