On September 24, 2015, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that Central Refrigerated Service agreed to settle an age and sex discrimination charge filed by the agency. The EEOC says that a strength test the company required truck driver applicants to take discriminated against women and those over the age of 40. The test required more strength than what was needed for the position, according to the agency. Central does not admit liability and says it settled because it no longer uses the test in question.
On August 24, 2015, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that Target Corporation has agreed to pay $2.8 million to resolve a charge of hiring discrimination. The EEOC found that three assessments formerly used by the company screened out applicants based on race and gender, and one violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Thousands of people were adversely affected by Target's discriminatory practices, and the money is to be distributed among them.
