Food Rite Community Supermarket Settles EEOC Sex Discrimination Lawsuit

Richmond  Store Denied Qualified Female Applicant Van Driver Job, Lawsuit Charged

RICHMOND, Va. - Lee's Food Corp., doing business as Food  Rite Community Super­market, will pay $10,500 and provide other relief to  settle a sex discrim­ination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment  Opportunity Commission (EEOC) the agency announced today.

According  to the EEOC's lawsuit, Food Rite refused to hire Deborah Newell for a vacant  part-time courtesy van driver position because of her gender.  The EEOC charged that in October 2012, Newell  saw an online job advertisement for a part-time courtesy driver position at  Food Rite Community Supermarket in Richmond.   Newell, who met all the job's qualifications, went to the Food Rite, where  she spoke to the store manager about her interest in the vacant driver  position.  The EEOC said the manager told  Newell that he would not hire a woman for the courtesy van driver position out  of concern that a female driver would be at greater risk of being assaulted on  the job than a male driver.   Approximately five days after Newell inquired about the courtesy van  driver position, the store hired a male candidate for the position, the EEOC said.

Sex discrimination violates Title VII of the Civil Rights  Act of 1964.  The EEOC filed suit in the  Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Lee's Food Corp. d/b/a Food  Rite Community Supermarket, Civil Action No.3:13cv838) after first  attempting to reach a pre-litigation settlement through its conciliation  process.

In addition to monetary damages, the three-year consent  decree resolving the lawsuit includes injunctive relief prohibiting the company  from discriminating on the basis of sex in the future, and from retaliating  against employees who resist unlawful discrimination or complain about it.  The settlement also provides that Lee's Food  Corp. will implement an employment policy prohibiting sex discrimination; conduct  training for all employees; post an employee notice about the settlement;  provide a copy of its anti-discrimination policy to all employees; and report discrimination  complaints to the EEOC.

"Denying a qualified applicant a job because  of her sex is unjust and unlawful, no matter if the discrimination results from  a 'concern' for women's safety," said Lynette A. Barnes, regional attorney for  the EEOC's Charlotte District Office.  "That  decision is a woman's alone to make for herself. All people should be allowed  an equal opportunity to compete for jobs for which they are qualified."

The EEOC is  responsible for enforcing federal laws against employment discrimination.  Further information is available at

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="" rel="nofollow">Seo Plugin</a>
