BP has now settled a workplace discrimination class action lawsuit for nearly $54 million after women claimed that they were not employed during the 2010 oil spill because of their gender.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission looked into these claims and did not find evidence that BP discriminated against women. Women in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana are involved in the lawsuits.
BP made a settlement fund available for those who were not employed by their contractors during the oil spill as a way to ensure that sex discrimination does not occur in the workplace.
