Comcast Corporation Settles Charges of Sex and Race Discrimination

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission pursued a claim against cable and internet giant Comcast, which is also a federal contractor, asserting that the provider discriminated against females by steering them toward lower-paying jobs and disproportionately failing to hire non-whites.  Although the events being prosecuted by the EEOC occurred in 2006 and 2007, the parties were not able to resolve the matter until April 30, 2015.  As part of that resolution, called a conciliation, Comcast will have to pay over $150,000 to affected individuals, and must commit to hiring at least 31 individuals of minority status.
