BASF Corporation to Pay $500,000 to Settle EEOC Retaliation Lawsuit Against Cognis

In its lawsuit, the EEOC charged - and the judge later held - that Cognis retaliated against a longtime employee at its Kankakee, Ill., facility in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Cognis had required that employee, as a condition of his continued employment, to sign a "last-chance agreement."  That agreement prohibited the employee from filing charges of discrimination with the EEOC, even for events that had yet to occur.  When the employee informed Cognis that he did not want to be bound by the agreement out of concern about its effect on his civil rights, Cognis fired him.
