NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

The firm represented plaintiffs in a national class-action effort filed against the struggling Foothill Ranch company in July in federal court in Santa Ana.

The lawsuit alleged that former top Wet Seal executives denied equal pay and promotion opportunities to black store managers or removed them outright, replacing them with white employees.

In December, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission found that company honchos had discriminated against Nicole Cogdell by removing her from her manager's role at a Pennsylvania store.

The EEOC’s three-year investigation determined that Wet Seal sought an "Armani look" featuring workers who looked more like Barbie and Ken than Cogdell, who is black.

Much has changed in the last year for the company and its 526 Wet Seal and Arden B. stores.

Amid sliding sales, Wet Seal purged its board and replaced Chief Executive Susan McGalla in January with John D. Goodman.

The new leadership team has agreed to shell out $7.5 million to settle the lawsuit, according to the NAACP firm. At least $5.58 million of the amount will go into a fund to cover damages to black current and former Wet Seal managers.

The company has also agreed to make "numerous changes," promising to track applications to ensure hiring diversity, expand its human resources department to allow for better investigation of discrimination complaints and maintain a council of advisors for guidance on equal employment tactics, according to NAACP LDF.

No boycott? I guess they love those bodysuits too much.

What the heck is an "Armani look"?
What is that even suppose to mean?
Didn't or doesn't Armani have multi-cultural looking folks in its campaigns? Idiots! Thought they were clever trying to go around the Equal Opp. Laws.

It's like when Citibank wanted only "all-American" types in their managerial and executive staff.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
