SANITATION COMPANY TO PAY $475K TO SETTLE HIRING BIAS LAWSUIT

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced that Robertson Sanitation, a Phoenix-based trash hauling, recycling and disposal company that operates in Georgia, will pay $475,000 to settle a sex discrimination lawsuit. The EEOC alleged in its lawsuit that a female applicant applied for a truck driver position with Robertson at a facility in Georgia, and was never interviewed nor made an offer despite being more qualified than several male applicants who were hired. EEOC alleged there was a class of similarly qualified women who were also rejected despite their qualifications, and that the discriminatory hiring practices were evident at a second company facility in Georgia.
