Six Workers Settles Complaints over Racial Threats, Slurs at Daimler Trucks North America's Portland Plant for $2.4 Million
Jan 29 15
Daimler Trucks North America agreed to pay $2.4 million to settle discrimination complaints filed by six minority workers who said they were subjected to threats and racial slurs at the company's Portland plant. Brad Avakian, commissioner of the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, announced the deal on January 29, 2015. Commissioner's office announced that the monetary settlement is easily the in the history of the agency's Civil Rights Division. The investigation began last year and included interviews with 60 current and former employees. The complaints against the company included an allegation that an employee threatened a black worker with a noose and said he'd drag the man behind a truck. Among other complaints, employees said they were called names such as "boy," ''buckwheat" and the N-word, and the company allowed intimidating graffiti, including a swastika, to remain in the bathroom. Meanwhile, a Native American worker said he faced harassment and his supervisor pushed him against a truck while challenging him to a fight. A black employee who is gay said he was repeatedly harassed because of his race and sexual orientation. Brian Burton, the general counsel for Daimler Trucks North America, announced that the company co-operated with the investigation and is "committed to diversity and inclusion." Five other employees declined to participate in the settlement and plan to take their cases to court. Burton said it is company policy not to comment on pending litigation. The $2.4 million settlement will be split by the six workers, and includes attorney fees and a fund for any future complaints. The employees all agreed to leave the company and never reapply. Besides the monetary settlement, Daimler Trucks agreed to the following measures: Install a civil rights complaint hotline for workers. Require supervisor training. Train at least two managers to conduct internal investigations. Maintain a supervisor logbook for any future incidents.
