Dell to pay $7 million to settle discrimination case

Round Rock-based Dell Technologies will pay $7 million to settle allegations of race and gender-based wage discrimination, the U.S. Labor Department said Monday.

Dell Technologies will provide $7 million in lost wages, interest and benefits to the affected workers, as well as “assuring that all employees are afforded equal employment opportunities,” according to a news release announcing the agreement. The settlement includes $1.5 milllion already voluntarily paid in 2012.

The settlement with Dell is one of the largest obtained by the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, which monitors government contractors for compliance with non-discrimination laws. Also Monday, financial services firm Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $10 about million to about 600 workers to settle pay discrimination claims at the company’s New York headquarters, according to the Labor Department.

“Dell Technologies is working with us to ensure pay equity corporate-wide,” Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs director Craig Leen said in a written statement. “Together, we will ensure that the company complies with equal employment opportunity laws in its employment practices, in addition to remedying findings that OFCCP made.”
