EEOC Settles With ContractorSep 10, 2004 | AP
A construction firm in Pennsylvania will pay 50-thousand dollars to settle a claim that it discriminated against a white woman with three biracial children.
The company owner allegedly subjected the woman to derogatory remarks about blacks, plus made sexual comments.
Dana Walters formerly lived in Monroeville, Pennsylvania. She now lives in Richardson, Texas.
Flynn Construction Management General Contracting of Wilkinsburg admits no wrongdoing in today's agreement.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in March sued on behalf of Walters, who was the company's national marketing director.
She left the company in 2002 because of alleged harassment.
The complaint centered on Flynn's owner, Thomas O'Connor, who declined comment on the settlement.
