DETROIT (Legal Newsline) — The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced Morse Moving & Storage will pay $30,000 to settle allegations related to retaliation.
According to EEOC, the residential and corporate moving services provider fired Latasha Black mere hours after she complained about racial harassment. Such alleged action constitutes as retaliation and is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Right Act of 1964.
"EEOC is committed to enforcing anti-retaliation provisions to ensure that employees are free to exercise their rights without fear of retaliation," said Kenneth Bird, acting regional attorney for EEOC's Indianapolis District. "Morse Moving should be commended for resolving this case early in litigation, and committing itself to complying with Title VII."
