BJ's settles discrimination suit for $100,000
South Florida Business Journal
BJ's Wholesale Club is to pay $100,000 to settle a discrimination lawsuit involving its Homestead store, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced Thursday.
The EEOC had filed suit in U.S. District Court in South Florida, charging that a hostile workplace was created when one of BJ's managers subjected a Puerto Rican employee and a black employee to offensive slurs based on race and national origin. The manager was a Cuban-American.
