OPENonline 0 278

Law 360 reports that Dollar General and the EEOC filed a motion to settle a suit that was originally filed more than 6 years ago. In the suit the EEOC claims Dollar General’s applicant screening process creates disparate impact on black applicants. The Law 360 post states that Dollar General defends their process and denies any discrimination against African-Americans. The article goes on to say that Dollar General’s belief is that the EEOC claims are unfounded, but they are happy to have a resolution, and will continue to employ steps to ensure the safety of property, customers and employees. Law 360 also reports that the motion filed includes a $6 million settlement payment by Dollar General. The case is Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. DolGenCorp LLC (1:13-cv-04307), District Court, N.D. Illinois, and more information can be found here.
