Construction attorney Greg Parsons takes a look at this issue in this Stites & Harbison Client Alert.
Unfortunately, racial discrimination still occurs on construction sites throughout the country. Fortunately, leaders within the construction industry are taking steps to eliminate racism and other forms of discrimination within the industry. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) is stepping up enforcement efforts against the construction industry, as demonstrated, in part, by the EEOC’s recent $1.2 million settlement with The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company (“Whiting-Turner”) on a discrimination and retaliation claim. Construction attorney Bill Geisen takes a look at the discrimination issues in construction in this Stites & Harbison Client Alert.
