Wednesday, June 10, 2015

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) resolved its race and national origin harassment suit against NFI Interactive Logistics LLC, a privately owned provider of transportation and distribution services, which is headquar­tered in New Jersey. The case, which arose out of conduct at the company's now-closed Bolingbrook facility, was pending in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois before The Honorable Magistrate Judge Michael Mason, No. 1:14-cv-07569.

Under the decree, the company agreed to take proactive steps to help ensure that its employees work in an environment free from harassment, including providing anti-harassment training for certain human resource professionals and managers, and tracking and reporting future complaints of harass­ment. The company also agreed to pay $180,000 to compensate five employees that the agency identified as victims of harassment during their employment with the company.
