The company was investigated by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for allegedly racist bias in hiring and bonuses.

The social media platform Facebook, which came to the fore with the censorship of world leaders, this time faced accusations of racist approach in recruitment and paid bonuses.

The investigation was initiated upon the application of one of the rejected candidates who applied for a job on Facebook and the manager named Oscar Veneszee Jr., who is currently working in the company. Three lawyers who applied for a job and an executive who claimed that the company discriminated against them spoke to the American media.

The lawyer of the group, Peter Romer-Friedman, who alleged discrimination against them, said in a statement that the EEOC was investigating Facebook for racial bias in hiring and promotions.

Promoting racist stereotypes

Facebook operations program manager Oscar Veneszee Jr. and three candidates filed a criminal complaint against Facebook last July for racist prejudice in hiring and promotions.

Filing a criminal complaint, Oscar Veneszee Jr. explained that Facebook relies on subjective assessments and promotes racist stereotypes, discrimination against black candidates and employees.

Researchers went to Facebook in August

Peter Romer-Friedman, a lawyer at Gupta Wessler representing Veneszee and other job candidates, said in a statement that the EEOC brought researchers to Facebook last August and received detailed information documents from both parties in the last 4 months.

Romer-Friedman, the plaintiff’s attorney, stated that a Facebook recruitment policy gives employees a bonus of up to $ 5,000 when a recommended candidate is hired, so that the candidates referred to the company tend to reflect the structure of existing employees at the expense of black professionals.

3.9 percent of employees are black

Facebook announced that, as of last June, around 3.9 percent of its employees in the US were black.

What is the EEOC?
