Whirlpool loses discrimination appeal

November 6, 2007

The Indiana Court of Appeals has ruled against Whirlpool Corp., saying an employee at its Evansville plant was fired in retaliation for filing a racial-discrimination complaint, reports the Evansville Courier & Press.

The ruling, which upholds earlier decisions by the Vanderburgh County-Evansville Human Relations Commission and Circuit Court Judge Carl Heldt, states Harriett Layne should be reinstated and paid $113,137 in lost wages.

The company might appeal.
