Department of Labor files lawsuit against JBS USA Lux S.A. and Swift Beef Co. alleging hiring discrimination

During a compliance review, OFCCP found that the Texas facilities had systemically discriminated against qualified American Indian/Alaskan Native, African-American, Hispanic, and Caucasian applicants, while favoring Asian applicants, for general production jobs at their beef processing plant in Cactus, TX, from at least September 2007 through at least June 2010.  The complaint also alleges that the discrimination may continue to the present. 

This is the second lawsuit filed by OFCCP against the company.  The first lawsuit, filed in December 1, 2014, alleges that the company’s Hyrum, Utah facility systemically discriminated against qualified female, Caucasian, African-American and Native American applicants seeking entry-level jobs at its beef processing plant at that location.  News Brief:  https://www.dol.gov/newsroom/releases/ofccp/ofccp20161213
