    EEOC Sues Employer for Reverse Discrimination

    Posted by Nicole Prysby on Tue, Jan 17, 2017 @ 17:01 PM

    EEOC announced that it is suing California employer Marquez Brothers, Inc., for failure to hire non-Hispanic applicants based on race. The EEOC alleges that Marquez Brothers discouraged non-Hispanic applicants from applying for jobs, favored less-qualified Hispanic applicants over applicants of other races for unskilled labor positions, and asked applicants if they spoke Spanish when Spanish language skills were not a job requirement. The lawsuit, alleging violations of Title VII, seeks back pay, benefits, compensatory and punitive damages, and injunctive relief.
