Models include the 320i, 328i, 320i xDrive, 328i xDrive sedans from the 2012 to 2014 model years, as well as the 2014 328i xDrive Sports Wagon; model year 2012 and 2013 528i and 528i xDrive sedans; 2013 and 2014 X1 sDrive28i and X1 xDrive28i vehicles; and model year 2012 to 2014 X4 sDrive28i roadsters.

Tuesday, 11 Jun 2013 10:03am EDT 

Dow Jones reported that The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed lawsuits against a Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) manufacturing operation in South Carolina and discount-retailer Dollar General Corp (DG) alleging that the companies' criminal background check policies resulted in employees being fired or being screened out in the hiring process. The suit against BMW Manufacturing Co. alleges the Company disproportionately screened out African Americans from jobs. The accusations involve UTi Worldwide Inc. (UTIW) employees that provided logistics services to the plant. The employees had been screened under UTi's criminal-background check policy, which is limited to convictions in the past seven years, while BMW's policy has no time limit. When UTi ended its contract with the plant in 2008, BMW ordered new background checks for the workers in question, which revealed violations of the BMW policy, which led to their terminations though they had been working at the site for years.  Full Article
