NJ LIQUOR STORE TO PAY $60K TO SETTLE RACE BIAS LAWSUIT

The EEOC has announced that Shopper’s Vineyard, a wine and liquor store in Clifton, New Jersey will pay $60,000 to settle a race discrimination lawsuit brought by the EEOC. The EEOC alleged the store laid off the only African American front-line manager because of his race, and not because of economic reasons as he was told. The store retained white managers with less tenure and experience and hired many new employees, including four new white managers within the year after the plaintiff was laid off.
