Bloomington Business Settling Racial Lawsuit

Last updated on Tuesday, December 22, 2009

(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - A Bloomington business will settle a discrimination suit brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of a diabetic black employee.

RMG Communications, doing business as Bloom Marketing Group, will pay $60,000 to settle the disability and race discrimination lawsuit.

The suit claimed that Bloom discriminated against a black employee when she was sent for a drug screen after experiencing symptoms of diabetes at work.

Even though she passed the drug test, the employee was fired shortly after the incident.
