Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
FedEx Freight Sex Discrimination
FedEx Freight agreed to pay $115,000 to settle a sex discrimination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC alleged that FedEx Freight’s employee relations manager passed over three qualified women for a human resources job at its Phoenix office and instead hired an unqualified man, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The job required both a bachelor’s degree and two years’ experience in human resources, with related experience a substitute for the bachelor’s degree. The man who was hired had neither a bachelor’s degree nor two years of experience working in human resources, while all three of the women had at least two years’ human resources or related experience and/or a bachelor’s degree.
