Worley pays $1million to settle alleged pay discrimination case involving subsidiary

Worley has agreed to pay out $1million to 42 employees to settle an alleged pay discrimination case involving one of its subsidiaries.

The US Department of Labor (DOL) has entered into a conciliation agreement with the engineering giant over the historical dispute with Jacobs Engineering in Houston involving female, Black and Hispanic employees.

A routine compliance evaluation by the department found Jacobs Engineering discriminated against the affected employees beginning on or before Dec 31, 2016, though Jacobs denied the allegations.
