Federal Agency Backs Discrimination Suit Against Nation’s Largest Uniform Provider

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed papers in federal court Tuesday supporting a discrimination lawsuit against Cintas Corp. Cincinnati based Cintas is the country’s largest provider of work uniforms.

“After a review of the available evidence, EEOC has determined that there is sufficient and reasonable basis to believe that Cintas discriminates against women in the recruitment and hiring of sales drivers,” EEOC General Counsel Eric S. Dreiband stated in the agency’s motion to intervene in the suit, Ramirez et al. v. Cintas. Filing the motion means that EEOC, a federal agency whose members are appointed by the President, is certifying that the suit is of general public importance.

Several Cintas employees filed the suit last year in U.S. District Court in San Francisco charging that Cintas has a company-wide pattern of discrimination against African American, Hispanic, and women employees.
