Nearly 300 JBS Greeley employees will receive $ 5.5 million in compensation following a 2010 discrimination lawsuit.


JBS Greeley will pay up to $ 5.5 million for discriminating against past workers.

The U.S. Commission on Equal Employment Opportunities filed a lawsuit in 2010 against a food processing company. The EEOC claimed that JBS discriminated against black people, Muslims and immigrants from Somalia.

The alleged discrimination violates Article VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, a federal law prohibiting discrimination in the workplace.

“The EEOC is proud to have received such a significant relief for hundreds of workers affected by the illegal labor practices alleged in this lawsuit,” EEOC President Charlotte A. Burroughs said in a news release. “This situation is a reminder that discrimination and harassment on a regular basis remain important issues that we need to address.”

News reported that Muslim staff were not allowed to pray and were harassed when they tried to pray during the scheduled break. The EEOC alleges that during Ramadan 2008, company employees turned off water fountains and banned drinking water and bathing before prayers.
