Pelham, Alabama Company Pays $50,000 to Settle Gender Discrimination Case

In its lawsuit, the EEOC alleged that Automation Personnel Services subjected Andrea Williams to gender based discrimination. The EEOC alleged that Williams attempted to apply for a shipping-and-receiving position with an employer for whom Automation was recruiting and referring multiple applicants.  Despite being qualified for this position, Automation’s recruiter purportedly refused to interview Williams or consider her for these open positions, telling her,  the job is “not suitable for women,” and “the work is difficult.”  The Complaint further states that the personnel company referred approximately 55 applicants to that employer between June and December 2012, only one of whom was female, the EEOC charged.

Automation ultimately settled the disputed EEOC claims for $50,000.00 along with other conditions including continued monitoring by the EEOC.
