Pemco Aeroplex Inc.

Birmingham, AL: (Jun-01-07) The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission brought charges against Pemco Aeroplex Inc., a division of Birmingham-based Pemco Aviation Group Inc., alleging that the company racially discriminated against its employees. The case, filed in 2000, was based on 36 separate discrimination charges brought against the aerospace and defense company. According to the EEOC, Pemco subjected its black employees to a hostile environment that included the display of racially offensive graffiti, nooses, swastikas, and KKK graffiti, as well as racial slurs and epithets.

In a settlement reached, Pemco Aeroplex agreed to pay the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission $390,000. Further, as part of the settlement, the company is required to amend its policies on workplace racial harassment and retaliation, which will include a new internal complaint procedure, annual training on employment and diversity policies and surveys on the implementation of the policies.
