The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced a lawsuit against BMW on Tuesday, alleging that one of its facilities in South Carolina adopted a criminal background check policy that led to a disproportionate impact on African-Americans.
According to the EEOC, BMW switched contractors at its South Carolina plant in 2008 and instructed employees of the old contractor who had been working at the site to reapply with the new firm. This new firm was instructed to conduct fresh criminal background checks on all applicants.
...The result was that out of 645 experienced employees, 88 were denied rehire, including 70 blacks, the commission claims. That means 80% of those turned away were black, despite blacks constituting only 55% of employees.

Obama’s been gunning for this freedom of association aspect of the First Amendment, insofar it involves hiring among other associating, for some time.
Just toss it among the Amendments to the Constitution his administration has already shredded.
The EEOC admits that Blacks are Criminals
I hope both companies fight this Black Racism. Black community needs to be held accountable and responsible....not honest folks
” not asking about backgrounds until the second or third interview, and if a candidate has a background to take a solid look “one more time” before deciding against a particilar candidate. “
Interviews are all about eliminating the unsuitable candidates as early as possible. I think that most ex-con’s will fall into the category of one interview only. Can you deliver appliances to people’s homes or not? The most important thing about hiring this guy, is not accepting somebody who will endanger your customers and result in a lawsuit. In a book on how to not be a victim a former robber said, “My job was to deliver stuff. I’d ask to use your bathroom and then unlock a window.”
FWIW, I notice that people tend to get the hell out of your way!......................
this is the jessie jackson shakedown crowd.
This is to force them to use certain “favored” (crony) bond and consulting firms.
I hope they fight and break the back of these litigation bullies.
Also it is probably supported by unionista thugs.
Haven't you noticed that the NBA balances out with the cheerleaders?
I stand cor-REC-ted!
I like Fords and have even owned two Lincolns, but the Lincolns have REALLY given me problems. I don’t know if I’ll ever get another Lincoln.
So does pre-employment, random and post-accident drug testing also discriminate against “people of color” disproportionately, too, then? Maybe they should file a suit against the insurers who mandate and the companies who implement such policies, as they just can’t say no to drugs (and crime)and that makes it racist to fire them. (/s)
Why not? Have they run out of blackmail material so soon?
