One of the largest apple producers in the United States has been placed under a temporary restraining order (TRO) filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
EEOC Regional Attorney William Tamayo said, “Filing for a temporary restraining order is not a common action for us. But in this case, we saw an urgent need to do all in our power to protect the farm workers who participate in this case. We hope this lawsuit and the power of the court’s restraining order will encourage workers to be able to step forward with information about the discrimination with the knowledge that the law protects them and their jobs.”
