The complaint was filed by about 40 American employees who said they were assigned fewer hours and made less money than counterparts from outside the U.S. It said some were eventually fired because of their race.
A lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Monday accuses a Columbus window company of firing an employee because of his age. EEOC filed the suit in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia on behalf of Ronald Henderson.
