Bass Pros payment of $10.5 million must be filed within five days of the signing of the contract by the federal judge. The money is paid into an interest account managed by a third party that also distributes payments to people who have filed claims against the company. The EEOC said the national settlement agreement was aimed at strengthening and improving recruitment and recruitment practices for African Americans and Hispanics. One of the main thrusts of the agreement is to strengthen Bass Pro`s diversity efforts and commitment to non-discriminatory recruitment, including the appointment of a Director of Diversity and Inclusion, positive promotion efforts, updated EEO policies and recruitment practices, as well as the EEO`s annual training for executives and non-executives. The court also found that all payments made by Bass Pro in connection with the transaction “should not be construed as an admission of liability.” “This agreement reflects the commitment of Bass Pro and EEOC to resolve the dispute as part of a collective effort to further strengthen Bass Pro`s hiring practices,” the company said, adding that the $10.5 million payment “does not constitute an admission by Bass Pro against a federal discrimination law or other laws.” The agreement remains in force for 42 months. It includes Bass Pro`s Tracker Marine Company. A provision requires the company to create an office for diversity and inclusion and to hire a director to ensure that the company complies with the terms of the EEOC agreement. Some of this money is used to provide “monetary relief” to candidates who claimed to have been discriminated against when they seek employment, according to the agreement. For the past six years, the EEOC and Bass Pro Shops have been fighting in court over whether the outdoor equipment dealer has violated federal laws on racial discrimination and retaliation. Now the parties to the Discrimination Pro claims have secured a $10.5 million deal that promises to resolve the nationwide complaint that has plagued the company and its potential and former employees for years. “This agreement reflects the commitment of Bass Pro and EEOC to resolve the dispute as part of a joint effort to further strengthen Bass Pro`s recruitment practices,” the company said.
In this blog post, I will review the Equal Employment Commission (EEOC) agreement with Bass Pro Outdoor World under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. I will explain what a “model or practical” complaint is and how it can be used to protect workers from racial discrimination. With respect to the proposed Rule 49, since it deals with punitive damages, the panel proposes that the Teamsters Stage I jury be liable for punitive damages through special questioning and asks whether the accused engaged in a pattern or practice of discrimination with “malicious or ruthless indifference”. Id. at 802. However, the Allison rule states that “unit damages cannot be assessed only where it is established that the defendant has exercised a discriminatory model or practice.” Allison, 151 F.3d to 417. Thus, in “standard or practical cases,” “punitive damages and injuries should be determined based on a justifiable liability to individual claimants in the second stage of a type or practice case, and not in the case of the simple determination of general responsibility for the class in the first degree.” Id.
