PBM Graphics to Pay $334,000 to Settle EEOC Discrimination Suit

“We hope this lawsuit reminds employers that they cannot discriminate on the basis of national origin, regardless of the national origin of the perpetrators, victims or beneficiaries of the discrimination,” said Lynette A. Barnes, regional attorney for the EEOC’s Charlotte District Office. “Employers must also re­member that they are responsible for temporary employees in their workplaces and must assign hours to them without regard to their national origin.”

Tina Burnside, supervisory trial attorney for the EEOC’s Charlotte District Office, added, “Title VII requires employers to provide equal employment opportunities to all workers including temporary workers, and employers cannot discriminate against temporary employees in job assignments or other terms and conditions of employment.”
