Carter v. UPS (Racial Discrimination)
United Parcel Service agreed to pay $8.2 million to about 12,000 employees to settle allegations that it discriminated against African-American employees in pay, promotion, and job assignments. (The overall amount of the settlement was reportedly $12.1 million.) The lawsuit alleged that UPS routinely passed over African-American workers for promotion in favor of less-experienced white workers, failed to pay African-American supervisors the same wages as whites, and retaliated against those who complained of unfair treatment.
