Bank of America to Pay $2.2 Million to Blacks Discriminated Against

Bank of America

In a landmark decision, the U.S. Department of Labor has ordered Bank of America to shell out just under $2.2 million to 1,147 Black job applicants. Judge Linda S. Chapman ruled that the bank applied unfair and inconsistent selection criteria resulting in the rejection of qualified Black applicants for teller and entry-level clerical and administrative positions. 

The ruling awards $964,033 to 1,034 applicants who were rejected for jobs in 1993 and $1,217,560 to 113 individuals rejected between 2002 and 2005. It also orders Bank of America to extend job offers, with appropriate seniority, to 10 class members as positions become available.
