The lawsuit filed Thursday says the boat manufacturer sexually discriminated against more than 200 women over a two-year span. Lund argues those in question lacked experience, although investigators say even qualified female candidates weren't hired.
Settlement reached after discrimination claims at Lund's boat plant
Brunswick Corp. and Lund Boat Co. have agreed to pay $295,000 in back wages and interest to nearly 200 female job applicants who were rejected for entry-level positions at a Minnesota manufacturing plant. The settlement comes after a lawsuit was filed by the U.S. Department of Labor last year alleging hiring discrimination.
