BMW settles EEOC law suit for $1.6 million

In addition to the million dollar settlement, BMW will also provide job opportunities to the victims of what the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission called a background check policy that disproportionately affected African-Americans.

The EEOC alleged that BMW’s background check policy not only disproportionately affected African-Americans but it was also inconsistent with “business necessity,” according to USA Today.

P. David Lopez, the EEOC’s general counsel, said in an announcement following the settlement of race discrimination lawsuit that the EEOC “has been clear that while a company may choose to use criminal history as a screening device in employment, Title VII requires that when a criminal background screen results in the disproportionate exclusion of African-Americans from job opportunities, the employer must evaluate whether the policy is job related and consistent with a business necessity.
