Assistant Manager Discrimination

St. Louis, MO: (Sep-19-07) The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission brought a federal discrimination lawsuit against Price Cutter Supermarkets in Springfield, MO, alleging that Sean Mabins, a former assistant store manager was racially harassed. The suit, brought on behalf of Mabins, was filed in St. Louis federal court. The suit claimed that the discrimination was pervasive, extreme, and ongoing. It stated that Mabins' manager repeatedly insulted him with racial comments and sexually harassed one of Mabins' co-workers. Shortly after Mabins reported the discrimination to the Roswil's president in 2002, he was suspended indefinitely for allegedly stealing from the store.

In a settlement reached, Price Cutter Supermarkets agreed to pay $100,000 to settle the federal discrimination lawsuit. The chain of Price Cutter Supermarkets was owned by Springfield-based Roswil Inc. until 2005. The chain was then purchased by RPCS Inc., which was also named in the suit.
