DHL Global Forwarding Inc. Key Developments
DHL Global Forwarding Inc. Pays $201,000 to Settle EEOC National Origin Discrimination Suit
Dec 4 12
DHL Global Forwarding Inc. will pay $201,000 to nine employees and provide other significant relief to settle a national origin hostile environment lawsuit brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The settlement resolves the EEOC's and Plaintiff-Intervenor Carlos Villanueva's claims against DHL Global. The EEOC charged DHL Global with subjecting a class of Hispanic employees to national origin discrimination. The EEOC's suit also resolved a retaliation claim by one non-Hispanic employee who was allegedly fired for a brief time after he reported the treatment of Hispanic employees. The EEOC complained that DHL Global officials ignored the complaints of employees even after the discriminatory conduct was reported to management. The EEOC's suit also alleged that DHL Global retaliated against Troy Petty, a union steward, by firing him after he reported the mistreatment of Hispanic employees to DHL officials on numerous occasions. Petty was ultimately returned to work and continues to be employed with the other affected employees. The EEOC filed suit after first attempting to reach a pre-litigation settlement through its conciliation process. The three-year consent decree settling the case, signed by Judge Sam A. Lindsay on November 30, 2012, provides for a permanent injunction against DHL Global that prohibits the company from further discriminating against any employee on the basis of national origin, harassing any employee on the basis of national origin or retaliating in any way against any person because of opposition to any practice declared unlawful by Title VII. DHL Global will pay $201,000 in monetary relief and develop strong policies to respond to reports of national origin discrimination. In addition, DHL Global will conduct annual anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training, which will include instruction on the prevention of national origin harassment in the workplace. As part of the settlement, EEOC will monitor compliance with the consent decree. DHL will provide EEOC a log of all employee complaints alleging national origin discrimination or retaliation. DHL also agreed to impose discipline - up to and including termination, suspension without pay or demotion upon anyone found to have engaged in national origin discrimination.
