EEOC Files Suits Against Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, Dollar General Corp-DJ
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
