Alleged Retaliation Costly for Staffing Agency

It’s costing a California staffing agency 24,500 to get out from under a charge alleging it retaliated against a worker who complained about discrimination.

According to the charged filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the employee had been placed by United Staffing at the same location for seasonal work since 2006. The charge further contended that the employee filed a discrimination charge with the EEOC at the end of the 2014 season.

After the employee filed the complaint, she alleged that she was not recalled to work for that location by United Staffing at the start of the next season, nor did the staffing agency place her at any other location. The EEOC investigated the allegations and found reasonable cause to believe that United Staffing was liable for discriminatory retaliation, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

United Staffing is based in Visalia, California.

Aside from the monetary relief, United Staffing agreed to reinstate the employee and place her on an active assignment list, make reasonable efforts to place her in positions and provide her a neutral reference. T
