Two Texas companies have been ordered to pay fines to resolve discrimination lawsuits based on workers’ age and disability. Eight dock workers fired from Central Freight Lines, based in Waco, will be paid a total of $400,000 in the settlement of an age discrimination lawsuit brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The company has terminals in Fort Worth and Dallas. The other company, Service Temps, doing business as Smith Personnel Solutions, lost an appeal of a jury verdict awarding $103,200 to a woman who suffered discrimination related to a disability.
