BROCKTON (CBS) – Brockton-based White’s Bakery will pay up to $95,000 in fines and restitution after allegations that a mixed-race employee was “repeatedly exposed” to racial slurs on the job, forcing him to eventually quit.
Attorney General Maura Healey’s office announced the settlement on Thursday.The bakery will review its anti-discrimination policies and require anti-bias training for employees.
Healey’s office had brought a lawsuit alleging White’s Bakery created a “racially hostile work environment.” A ;ong-time supervisor was accused of using slurs in front of subordinate employees.
According to the complaint, one of the victims worked at White’s Bakery for four months in 2018. Management allegedly knew that the supervisor used the racial slurs, but took no action.
“Workers should be able to do their job in an environment safe and free from harassment,” Healey said in a statement. “Employers need to ensure that they have the right training, policies and accountability to make sure things like this don’t happen in their workplaces.”
Following the settlement, White’s Bakery will pay the victim $65,000 and $30,000 to the state. Of that, $15,000 will be suspended pending compliance with the agreement.
“Discrimination anywhere should not be tolerated,” Phyllis Ellis, President of the Brockton Area Branch of the NAACP, said. “White’s Bakery and its management have been held accountable for creating an unacceptable and racially hostile work environment. I was hopeful that this lawsuit would bring change in policy at White’s Bakery, and I think it has.”

Dr. Dre served with divorce docs at grandmothers funeral: report
More On: dr. dre Dr. Dre ‘affair’ unveiled in alleged mistress’ 2019 labor lawsuit Dr. Dre to pay another $1.5M in fees to ex Nicole Young Dr. Dre’s oldest daughter, LaTanya Young, says she’s homeless, living out of her car Dr. Dre ordered to pay almost $300K in monthly spousal support
Dr. Dre’s estranged wife, Nicole Young, had the “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” rapper served with divorce papers at his grandmother’s funeral, according to a new report.
The process server arrived at a cemetery in Los Angeles on Monday, where Dre, 56, was laying his late relative to rest and got into a dispute with the Beats Entertainment founder when he tried to give him the legal documents, sources told TMZ Wednesday.
Insiders close to Dre claim he was standing right beside his grandma’s casket when the server tried to give him the papers, TMZ said.
However, sources on Young’s side say the documents were served at the cemetery’s parking lot, according to TMZ.
Dre reportedly was so upset that he would not take the court papers in his hands, forcing the process server to drop the documents either by the gravesite or the parking lot, according to conflicting sources.
TMZ reports that the documents ordered Dre to pay a balance of $1,224,567 for his young’s attorney’s fees.
The Aftermath Entertainment CEO reportedly only paid $325,433 of $1.5 million ordered by a California judge.
Reps and attorneys for Dre and Young did not immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.
The former couple, who were were married for 24 years, have had a very contentious split thus far, since Young, 51, filed for divorce in June 2020.Young, seen here with Dre in 2017, has petitioned his alleged mistress’ to be deposed for their divorce case.FilmMagic
Young has accused the hip hop star in court papers of abuse that was so bad she now has “post-traumatic stress syndrome,” though Dre has strongly denied the abuse claims.
In July, a judge ordered Dre to pay Young nearly $300,000 in spousal support monthly.
The former NWA member will have to keep paying the massive amount to his ex until she remarries or enters into a domestic partnership — or unless the court orders otherwise at a later date.
The estranged pair — who share son Truice, 24, and daughter Truly, 20 — have not been able to agree on how they will divide all assets of Dre’s estimated $800 million fortune.Filed under celebrity divorces , celebrity exes , celebrity families , dr. dre , 10/20/21
