Meyer Tool Signs Consent Decree with OFCCP

2012-09-18

During a compliance review at Meyer Tool's Cincinnati plant, the OFCCP determined that the company failed to ensure that qualified job applicants received equal consideration for employment without regard to race.  On November 19, 2010, OFCCP filed an administrative complaint against Meyer Tool alleging systemic race-based discrimination.

On September 7, 2012, OFCCP and Meyer Tool reached an agreement whereby Meyer Tool will pay $325,000 to 60 African-American applicants who were rejected for entry-level machinist positions at the company's manufacturing plant in Cincinnati.  Meyer Tool will also extend job offers to at least 11 members of the original class as positions become available. Additionally, Meyer Tool will maintain legally required employment records, provide equal employment opportunity training to all employees involved in the hiring process and submit detailed progress reports to the OFCCP for two years.
