Retail Chain Store Abused South Asian Employees, Federal Agency Charged

SAJAforum.org, Posted: Oct 22, 2008

NEW YORK A Hempstead, N.Y.-based chain of retail discount stores, National Wholesale Liquidators, Inc., will pay $255,000 to nine of its employees and agree to injunctive relief to settle a lawsuit brought by the U.S. EqualEmployment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the agency announced today, according to an EEOC press release posted on sajaforum.org. The EEOC had charged that the company subjected employees to a hostile work environment based on their race, national origin and religion, and sexually harassed an employee. In its lawsuit, the EEOC said a National Wholesale Liquidators store manager subjected South Asian workers to taunts about their national origin and religion. The EEOC also charged that the store manager sexually harassed a female employee. The woman, a Sikh, was told by the manager to remove her turban because she "would appear sexier without it."
