OFCCP Settles Hiring Discrimination Case with Caviness Beef Packers for $600,000

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) recently announced that it entered a Conciliation Agreement with Amarillo-based Caviness Beef Packers, Ltd. (“Caviness”) after a compliance evaluation revealed hiring discrimination at two of its meat processing facilities.

OFCCP determined during a compliance review of Caviness that the contractor had statistically significant disparities in the hiring rates, favoring men over women and Hispanics over non-Hispanics.  Caviness agreed to enter a Conciliation Agreement with OFCCP requiring it to pay $600,000 to 746 identified class members as back pay and interest.  In addition, Caviness agreed to extend offers to 81 women and non-Hispanics as positions become available and to revise its selection procedures for production producers to avoid any future violations.
