A&F Settles Justice Department Complaint

New Albany-based Abercrombie & Fitch has agreed to pay 158 thousand dollars to settle a Justice Department complaint claiming the clothier discriminated against an undocumented immigrant by requiring her to present a green card when she applied for a job. The company also agreed to two years of federal monitoring of its employment practices. Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the company wrongfully refused to hire a Muslim woman because she wore a head scarf.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
