Employer Pays $30K to Settle Retaliation Claim

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission  announced on Friday that the residential and corporate moving provider will pay $30,000 to settle a retaliation claim filed on behalf of Latasha Black.

Eliminating policies and practices that discourage or prohibit individuals from exercising their rights under employment discrimination statutes, or that impede the EEOC’s investigative or enforcement efforts, is one of six national priorities identified by the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Plan (SEP).
