AK Steel Corp.

Middletown, OH: (Feb-01-07) A racial discrimination lawsuit filed by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the US District Court in September 2003 has reached settlement. The lawsuit alleged AK Steel's Butler plant was a racially hostile workplace for a group of black workers. The workers claimed they often saw graffiti depicting Nazi symbols and Ku Klux Klan paraphernalia; they also heard racial slurs and epithets. AK Steel has agreed to pay $550,000 to settle the federal lawsuit as well as sensitize their employees to what constitutes racial harassment. Eight individuals received financial settlements ranging from $160,000 to $38,000. [PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE REVIEW: AK STEEL DISCRIMINATION]
