Jeff Wyler

Cincinnati, OH: (Apr-07-07) Thirty-nine plaintiffs filed suit against tri-state auto dealer Jeff Wyler, alleging that they had been passed over for car sales jobs because of their gender. The case stems from a series of complaints that the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission received from about a dozen women who alleged that they had been discriminated against. The lead plaintiff in the case claimed that she had tried to get a job at Wyler Chevrolet in Eastgate during a 15-month period that ended in August 2001. She contended that a number of men were hired during the period although she had been told that she would be hired as soon as a vacancy occurred. In a settlement reached, Jeff Wyler will pay the 39 women about $2.3 million in compensation. Besides the payment, the EEOC said the settlement includes management accountability and training as well as reporting and monitoring requirements. [ENQUIRER: HIRING DISCRIMINATION]
