    Van Trucking Firm to pay $2.43 Million to Settle EEOC Discrimination Lawsuit

    Trucking Firm to pay $2.43 Million to Settle EEOC Discrimination Lawsuit

    Occupational Health Safety, TX
    1/25/09
    An interstate trucking firm has agreed to pay $2.43 million and provide other remedial relief to a class of women to settle a major sex discrimination lawsuit brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the federal agency announced recently.
    EEOC had charged in the litigation that Pitt Ohio Express Inc. denied a class of qualified female applicants employment as truck drivers or dockworkers since 1997, while men were placed in these positions during the same period.

    That's an expensive lesson... be cheaper to go to college and take a degree in the subject or at least hire someone with enough sense not to pull that kind of crap.

    I just read about this suit on another site but they didnt list the company name. I write a blog about what my experiences were but pay was not the issue.

    The sheer volume of students that are recruited has made it a fertile ground for a few bad apples to roam free.

    I think this settlement should send a message that comapnies need to send their in-house staff for re-training to adapt to the 21st Century.

    We are in age where drivers can speak up and talk back.

    Trucking Companies would make a wise investment in their staff to send them on a field trip to a good HR seminar that covers Labor Issues.

    Denied a "class" of qualified female workers...

    I wonder what they mean by that?

    Class action lawsuit... Class in this case is probably referring all the Women who where discriminated against in this case because of their sex.. It's a legal reference to the group... Not a lawyer but I've watched a lot of TV..Hehe.
