Cummins settles discrimination lawsuit for $77k

Cummins is settling a discrimination lawsuit with a payment of more than $77,000 to a former female employee. The complaint charged that she was paid less than a male counterpart doing the same job.

That’s according to our news-gathering partners at RTV 6.

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity commission, a salary study conducted by the company found that she was being paid less, but she still didn’t receive a pay raise.

As part of the settlement, Cummins will also have to train its employees on the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, both of which prohibit wage discrimination based on sex.

The company denies any liability or wrongdoing in the suit.
