Ready Mix paid a total of $400,000 in compensation, which was to be distributed among the seven class members, to settle an EEOC complaint. The Commission had claimed that Ready Mix USA LLC had done business as a Ready Mix USA LLC sofa and had subjected a class of African-American men at the Ready Mix facility in Montgomery to a racially hostile work environment. A noose was displayed on the site, derogatory racial language, including references to the Ku Klux Klan, was used by a superior and a direct manager and that name calls based on race took place. Ready Mix denies that the racist harassment took place on its construction sites. The two-year decree requires Ready Mix to participate in further racist harassment or retaliation and requires the company to provide eEO training. Ready Mix will be required to amend its policies to ensure that racist harassment is prohibited and that there is a complaints investigation system in place. The company must also file certain complaints of harassment or retaliation with the EEOC. EEOC v Ready Mix USA LLC, 2:09-cv-00923 (M.D. Ala. February 3, 2012).

In August 2015, Target Corp. compensated for A$2.8 million in an EEOC charge that the retailer`s previous tests for hiring professionals discriminated against candidates on the basis of race, gender and disability. Three evaluations used by Target disproportionately examined candidates within and racial minorities, and a separate psychological assessment was a pre-employment medical examination, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act that the EEOC had charged. Target also violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by failing to keep sufficient records to assess the impact of its recruitment procedures. As part of the three-year conciliation agreement reached prior to the filing of a lawsuit, Target stopped using the tests and made changes to its applicant tracking system, the EEOC said. Some 4,500 unsuccessful applicants affected by the allegedly discriminatory tests can now apply for financial relief. In May 2017, Rosebud Restaurants agreed to pay $1.9 million to settle a racial discrimination complaint filed by the EEOC against 13 Chicago-area restaurants. The network was accused of refusing to hire African-American candidates and having managers who used racist slurs to refer to African-Americans. The cash prize goes to African-American candidates who have been denied vacancies.

Under an approval order, the chain also agreed to hiring targets, with the goal of having 11% of its future African-American staff. Rosebud is also required to recruit African-American candidates and train collaborators and managers in racial discrimination. EEOC v Rosebud Rest., 1:13-cv-06656 (N.D. III. May 30, 2017). In January 2015, Skanska USA Building, Inc., a developer based in Parsippany, N.J., paid $95,000 to settle a racist harassment and retaliation complaint from the EEOC. According to the EEOC complaint, Skanska violated federal law by allowing workers to subject a class of black employees who worked as goat-lifting devices to racist harassment and by dismissing them for complaining of wrongdoing with Skanska. Skanska was the general contractor for the Methodist Le Bonheur Children`s Hospital in Memphis, where the incidents took place in this complaint. The black employee class worked for C-1, Inc. Construction Company, a minority subcontractor for Skanska.

Skanska subcontracted to C-1 to operate the site and then supervised all C-1 employees during the construction. The EEOC criticized Skanska for not properly following complaints from goat-lifting devices that white employees exposed them to racist comments and physical assaults. EEOC vs. Shanska USA Building, Inc., No. 2:10-cv-02717 (W.D. Tenn. 29.01.2015). Convinced that any doctrine of superiority based on racial differentiation is scientifically wrong, morally reprehensible, socially unjust and dangerous and that there is no justification for racial discrimination, in theory or in Praxi
