St. Cloud tire company settles discrimination suit

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) -- A federal agency says a St. Cloud tire company accused of wage discrimination has agreed to pay a fine of $182,500.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced the settlement with Royal Tire Inc. on Monday.

The EEOC alleges that over a three-year period, the company paid its female human-resources director $35,000 per year less than the man who held the job before her.

The agency also says her salary was $19,000 less than the minimum salary for the position under the company's own compensation system.

The Equal Pay Act of 1963 prohibits discriminating in compensation based on gender.
