Colonial Parking, Inc. settles charges of hiring, pay discrimination with US Labor Department after contractor compliance review

ARLINGTON, Va. – The largest parking operator in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area has entered into a conciliation agreement with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs to resolve allegations of race-based hiring and pay discrimination.

Colonial Parking, Inc. entered into the agreement after an OFCCP compliance evaluation found that the company discriminated against African-American applicants for project manager positions at its District-area parking facilities. The agency also found the company paid African-American parking valet attendants less than their Hispanic coworkers; on average, the African-American valet attendants made $2,100 less per year than Hispanic employees in the same position, regardless of the job assignment and location. OFCCP determined that these actions violated Executive Order 11246, which prohibits federal contractors from discriminating in employment based on race, color or national origin.
