Lockheed Martin Corporation has agreed to pay a former African American employee $2.5 million to settle a racial discrimination case filed by the U.S. Equal Employment and Opportunity Commission. The former employee, a 45 year old aviation electrician, said he was called racial slurs and threatened by four co-workers and a supervisor between 1999 and 2001. When he complained about how the members of his six person team were treating him, managers allegedly told him, “That’s just boys being boys, and that’s the way it is here at Lockheed.”
