Under a tentative settlement, Columbia River Dairy in Boardman, Ore., will change its hiring practices so that women receive better notification of job openings.

“This settlement recognizes that our old system did not result in women being hired for certain positions at the dairies,” spokesman Len Bergstein was quoted in a newspaper article.

The sexual discrimination lawsuit was filed in September 2004 by three women who alleged the dairy would not hire them as milkers because of their gender. Two other women joined the lawsuit in early 2005.
