DAL Global Services to Pay $100,000 to Settle Hiring Discrimination

The Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has announced that DAL Global Services LLC in Denver has agreed to settle findings of hiring discrimination against 110 rejected Asian, black, white, and female job applicants. The agreement resolves the department's allegations that the employer discriminated against applicants for the position of ramp agent at Denver International Airport.

During a compliance evaluation of DAL's facility in Denver, OFCCP investigators found that the company engaged in hiring discrimination against Asian, black, white, and female applicants from January through December 2007. Under terms of a conciliation agreement, DAL Global Services will pay a total of $100,000 in back pay and interest to the 110 applicants and will provide 18 ramp agent positions to the class members.

"The Labor Department is committed to ensuring that all Americans are hired, promoted, and compensated fairly, without respect to their race, gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, or veteran status," said Melissa L. Speer, OFCCP's acting regional director of its Southwest and Rocky Mountain Region, who is based in Dallas. "This settlement of $100,000 should put all federal contractors on notice that the Labor Department is serious about eliminating systemic discrimination."

The company also has agreed to undertake extensive self-monitoring measures to ensure that all hiring practices fully comply with the law and to immediately correct any discriminatory practices. In addition, DAL Global Services will ensure compliance with Executive Order 11246 recordkeeping requirements.

DAL Global Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Airlines Inc. with headquarters in Atlanta, provides a wide variety of aviation services to the airline, including loading and unloading baggage and cargo, cleaning aircraft cabins, operating and maintaining ground service equipment, and performing ticketing and gate functions.

OFCCP, an agency of the Department of Labor, enforces Executive Order 11246 and other laws that prohibit employment discrimination by federal contractors. The agency monitors federal contractors to ensure that they provide equal employment opportunities without regard to race, gender, color, religion, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
