Automation Personnel Services Settles Sex Discrimination Suit

Automation Personnel Services, an Alabama-based staffing agency, recently settled a sex discrimination lawsuit brought by a woman who alleged she was denied an employment referral on the basis of her gender.

In July 2012, Andrea Williams applied for a shipping and receiving position at APS, but the company would not interview her for the position, allegedly telling her that the job was “not suitable for women” because it was “difficult.”

As part of the settlement, APS will pay $50,000 and must actively promote discrimination prevention and provide anti-discrimination training to hiring employees.  They are also required to report to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission every six months for the next two years.
