Mitsuwa Marketplace to pay $250,000 to settle EEOC discrimination lawsuit

Mitsuwa Marketplace Corporation has agreed to pay $250,000 to settle an EEOC national origin discrimination lawsuit.

The EEOC claimed that Mitsuwa, a large Japanese market in Edgewater, New Jersey, discriminated against its Hispanic employees for several years by paying them less than their non-Hispanic colleagues.

As part of the settlement, Mitsuwa agreed to increase the salaries of current Hispanic employees and the company pledged not to discriminated against Hispanic workers.

EEOC District Director Kevin Berry said, “Employers everywhere should know that Title VII insures that they cannot pay employees less based on their national origin, just as they cannot discriminate in compensation based on sex or race.”
