FRESNO, Calif. — A global food supplier is paying $140,000 to a job seeker to settle a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says Olam Americas offered the woman a job as an executive assistant in its Fresno office, then rescinded the offer after learning she was pregnant.

It was a violation of federal employment discrimination laws.

The Fresno Bee says the settlement also calls for Olam to designate a staff member to develop procedures for handling sex discrimination complaints.

Olam officials said Thursday that they don't condone sex discrimination and the settlement allows the company to strengthen its equal opportunity efforts.
