An Atlanta homebuilder has agreed to a $378,500 settlement in a lawsuit that accused the company of racial discrimination.
The lawsuit claimed that John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods Inc. intentionally steered African-American sales agents to lower-priced subdivisions, which prevented them from earning similar commissions as their white counterparts in higher-cost subdivisions.
Over the next six years, Wieland will hire at least 10 African-Americans and women for management positions as part of the settlement. Péralte C. Paul , Atlanta Journal-Constitution 06/23/2010
