Discrimination Suit

 

Discrimination Suit Against Alyeska. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed suit against Alyeska Pipeline Services Co., claiming minority employees were passed over for promotions within the company in 2002.

The lawsuit alleges that Hispanic, Native and black employees in the contracts department at the company’s Anchorage headquarters were not promoted to jobs where they would work on procurement strategy because of their race or national origin.

The lawsuit asks the court to order Alyeska to give the employees back pay with interest, as well as punitive damages.

Alyeska, owned by five oil companies, runs the 800-mile trans-Alaska oil pipeline and Valdez tanker port and employs 858 people.

EEOC attorneys claim

Only one employee, a Hispanic commercial auditor named Anthony Navarro, is named in the complaint, but EEOC attorneys claim the company also discriminated against others.

Navarro said he first complained about the alleged discrimination nine months ago to the Anchorage-based Joint Pipeline Office, a group of government regulators that oversee the pipeline.

Officials there started an investigation of Alyeska’s equal employment opportunity program but suspended it after the company acknowledged some shortcomings and agreed to correct them, said Rhea DoBosh, a Joint Pipeline Office spokeswoman.

About 7 years ago, my sister was in a car accident and was very pleased with the way the firm handled her case. Unforuntately, I was in a car accident and she recommended that I call Parker Waichman. I could not be more happy with the way the case was handled and the outcome. The staff is also very friendly, which was refreshing.
