BFI settles in sex discrimination suit

Posted By on Tue, Apr 1, 2008 at 12:06 PM

BFI Waste Services, which operates the landfill in Southwest Little Rock, will pay $190,780 to settle a sex discrimination suit, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced today.

According to a federal lawsuit, BFI denied one woman an opportunity to apply and denied hiring two other women as truck drivers, in spite of their qualifications. The EEOC filed the suit after an initial attempt at a settlement failed.

BFI also agreed to train employees in equal opportunity laws and report its truck driver hirings for the next three years.

The case was filed in the Eastsen District of Arkansas, western division.
