Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
Hiring Discrimination at Pascagoula Shipyard
Huntington Ingalls Industries paid $159,050 in back wages and interest to resolve alleged systemic hiring discrimination violations found by the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). OFCCP alleged that, beginning in 2011, Huntington Ingalls discriminated in its hiring and selection process against 80 African-Americans who applied for helper laborer positions at its Pascagoula, Mississippi, shipyard. OFCCP also found the company improperly used a pipefitter helper assessment as a prerequisite for continuing in the hiring process.
