P.H. Glatfelter Settles EEOC Suit for $180K

P.H. Glatfelter agreed to pay $180,000 to settle a federal disability discrimination lawsuit, according to a news release issued by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

The dispute revolved around testing used to screen candidates for positions involving the operation of forklifts and other motorized industrial equipment. P.H. Glatfelter required a medical examination and successful completion of a physical qualification standard recommended by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The EEOC claimed that such screening tests were excessive, and eliminated consideration of candidates with disabilities.

P.H. Glatfelter, a Pennsylvania-based paper manufacturer and supplier, must take other steps in addition to payment of the fine. Click on the link to read the full EEOC news release.
