Federal Judge Approves $2.4 Million Settlement Between Hawaii Farms and Thai Workers

A federal judge in Honolulu on Thursday approved settlements totaling $2.4 million between the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and four Hawaii farms in a discrimination lawsuit that alleged the farms exploited some 500 Thai farm workers. Under the settlement approved by U.S. District Judge Leslie Kobayashi, Mac Farms of Hawaii LLC, will pay $1.6 million; Kauai Coffee Co. Inc., will pay $425,000; Kelena Farms Inc. will pay $275,000; and Captain Cook Coffee Co. Ltd. will pay $100,000 directly to the victims. In addition, Kelena Farms, which is in Central Oahu, offered workers full-time jobs with benefits, and Captain Cook Coffee offered workers seasonal jobs with benefits, transportation and housing, according to the EEOC, which will monitor the terms of the job offers. The EEOC had initially filed a lawsuit against California-based labor contractor Global Horizons and six Hawaii farms in April 2011 on behalf of the Thai farm workers. The agency settled with one of the farms, Del Monte Fresh Produce, for $1.2 million last fall.
