BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

The EEOC also charged that Candid Litho Printing Ltd., which has facilities in Las Vegas and Long Island City, New York, fired the production manager after she complained about the discrimination and harassment. It said the company also fired the manager’s son and her fiancé without justification.
The company also entered into a three-year consent decree in which it agreed to retain a consultant to review and revise company policies to ensure they prohibit sexual discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation, and contain a process for prompt handling of discrimination complaints, among other settlement provisions, the EEOC said.

The company’s attorney had no comment.
