CHW to Pay $275K to Settle Hiring Discrimination Charges
The health system issued a statement Tuesday saying," CHW has cooperated fully in the development of this settlement agreement with the Department of Justice. CHW has implemented system wide training to address the concerns raised by the DOJ. We are in the process of reviewing and updating our hiring policies and procedures to ensure that such concerns do not arise in the future."
"All workers who are authorized to work in the United States have the right to look for a job without encountering discrimination because of their immigration status or national origin," said Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. "We are pleased to have reached a settlement with CHW and look forward to continuing to work with public and private employers to educate them about anti-discrimination protections and employer obligations under the law."
