Furniture Surplus ordered to pay out in racial discrimination case

Harrisburg, Pa. The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission has ordered Philadelphia-based Furniture Surplus to pay former employee Paul Holmes $7,588 for racial discrimination.

"Pennsylvania law requires businesses to treat their employees the same regardless of race," chairperson Stephen A. Glassman said. "And if an employee files a complaint against them, they are legally obligated to respond or risk being found liable for unlawful discrimination." The commission found Furniture Surplus liable for unlawful racial discrimination in terminating Holmes.
