Tucoemas Federal Credit Union Settles EEOC Lawsuit

by | Dec 15, 2019 | Discrimination, Retaliation

Tulare County-based Tucoemas Federal Credit Union (“Tucoemas”) has agreed to pay $450,000 to settle an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission lawsuit.

The EEOC alleges that Tucoemas “failed to hire three qualified internal female applicants over the age of 50 and instead hired a younger male applicant with no prior credit union experience.” The EEOC further alleges that Tucoemas then “retaliated against two of the female employees after they filed complaints with the EEOC, constructively forcing one employee to quit and firing another.” Read the full press release, entitled “Tucoemas Federal Credit Union Settles EEOC Discrimination Lawsuit for $450,000,” here.
