A $1.45 million settlement of a sex discrimination lawsuit has been reached against the Schott Corporation, a maker of specialty glass products, the EEOC announces, "Schott North America To Pay $1.45 Million To Settle Sex Bias Lawsuit."  The central claim in the case was that women employees were laid off at a grossly disproportionate rate as a result of a reorganization that purported to use criteria that were actually irrelevant to the jobs.  In addition to the monetary payment, the employer will be required to have its managers engage in anti-discrimination and anti-harassment training, refrain from any retaliation and post a notice in its plant of the settlement.
