U.S. EEOC Extracts Settlement from Meat Processors


Chicago Meat Authority Inc. (CMA) has agreed to pay $1.1 million to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to settle a racial discrimination lawsuit initiated in 2018.  At issue is the contention that the company discriminated against black applicants and favoring Hispanic employees.  A number of workers complained to the EEOC beginning in 2013 and the Company allegedly retaliated against those complaining of racial harassment.


The founder and president of the company noted that CMA functions as an Equal Opportunity Employer and agreed to the settlement without admitting fault in order to resolve the issue without additional dilution of management effort and legal costs.
