G&K to Pay Laundry Workers $290K to Settle Wage Discrimination Charges

DOL has reached a settlement with federal contractor G&K Services on allegations of gender–based pay discrimination.

G&K will pay nearly $266,000 to 59 women and almost $24,000 to 331 men who were affected by this unfair practice.
