Law360, New York (September 30, 2013, 7:06 PM EDT) -- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission slapped a company with a race bias suit in Alabama federal court Monday, claiming the catastrophic insurance claims company broke the law by yanking an employment offer from a job applicant who refused to cut off her dreadlocks.
The EEOC said that Catastrophe Management Solutions Inc. had a racially discriminatory policy banning workers from wearing dreadlocks that it enforced against Chastity C. Jones by withdrawing an offer of employment after she failed to acquiesce.
