CHICAGO (Legal Newsline) — The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced ADP LLC, a leading payroll processing and human resources management outsourcing provider, will settle allegations of discriminating against black and Hispanic individuals.

"We commend ADP's willingness to continue examining its recruitment, hiring and promotion practices to ensure that any potential roadblocks to employment and advancement are removed," said EEOC Chicago District director Julianne Bowman "We are particularly pleased to have achieved these results through a cooperative process of conciliation with ADP throughout our investigation, without having to resort to protracted investigation or litigation." 

ADP will pay close to $1.4 million and take steps to enhance its recruitment, hiring and promotion of minorities. Additionally, the company has agreed to inform EEOC of its future efforts to expand opportunities for minority job applicants. 

"While ADP believes that it has fully complied with the law, we chose to settle this matter to avoid the additional time, expense and distraction of EEOC proceedings, and to put this matter behind us so we can focus on serving our clients and growing our business opportunities in the Chicago area and beyond,” said ADP chief diversity & corporate social responsibility officer Rita Mitjans.
