New York State Employer Settles Racial Slur Case for $1 Million

A lawsuit alleging that a Rochester, NY contractor discriminated against African-Americans recently settled for $1 million. The suit alleged that African-American employees were subjected to racial slurs and graffiti, were given the least desirable jobs, laid off first at the end of the construction season, and hired last at the beginning of the construction season.

As a part of the settlement, the company must base layoffs and recalls on seniority, make a good-faith effort to employ African-American foremen, and provide anti-discrimination training.

This settlement comes as a relief for many of the company's current and former employees.
