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”.

Trucking company agrees to $65,000 discrimination settlement


The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced Friday that a Flushing, Michigan-based trucking and logistics company agreed to pay $65,000 to resolve a religious discrimination lawsuit.

The agency said the case, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Wheeler Trucking et al., was brought on behalf of a Torah Observant employee at Wheeler Trucking’s Sheffield, Ohio, facility.

The EEOC said in the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Cleveland, that the employee, who is Israeli, was subject to harassment that included likening him to a terrorist and mocking his religion. In addition, the company revoked the employee’s religious accommodation that allowed him to have off Saturdays to observe the Sabbath, the agency said.

Representatives for the parties did not respond to requests for comment.
