Judge Approves Howard $1.3 Million Lawsuit Settlement

A federal judge has given final approval to a settlement by Howard Industries, to pay $1.3 million and hire at least 70 workers to end a class action lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed by four black women who accused the company of discrimination for allegedly hiring only Hispanic workers. Court records show Howard Industries will pay $1.3 million into a settlement fund to be paid to possibly as many as 5,000 non-Hispanic individuals who applied for jobs at the company between March 2003 and Aug. 28, 2008. Also, within nine months after the settlement, the company will hire at least 70 of the individuals who had applied for jobs. Howard Industries entered the settlement without admitting any wrongdoing. The lawsuit claimed that one of the plaintiffs applied for a job at the Howard Industries electrical transformer plant in Laurel, Miss., every three to six months beginning in 2002, but wasn't offered a position until after the 2008 raid. The other plaintiffs made similar allegations.
