OFCCP Settles Hiring Discrimination Case with Cargill

OFCCP and Cargill Meat Solutions have reached a settlement in a set of hiring discrimination cases at three of the company’s facilities in Arkansas, Colorado and Illinois. Nearly 3,000 African American, Hispanic, Caucasian and female job applicants will share $2.2 million in back wages and interest after OFCCP investigators found that hiring managers at each location used inconsistent and subjective practices to favor one group over another based on race and sex. The settlement also resolves a 2011 lawsuit filed by OFCCP against Cargill for discrimination at its Springdale, Arkansas facility. For more on this settlement, check out the press release available
