According to a story in The Washington Post, Target has settled a class action lawsuit that claimed the company unlawfully discriminated against blacks and Latinos.
Evidently Target ran background criminal checks on their job applicants during the hiring process.
As part of the settlement:
The big-box chain said Thursday that members of the class-action lawsuit will receive priority in its hiring process for job openings at the company’s 1,800 U.S. stores. Applicants who are no longer in the market for a job — because they’re already employed or are retired, for example — will be eligible for a cash award.
Evidently now companies are required to forgive and forget.
We deserve better
