EEOC Sues Carolina Securities Lending/Community Lending America for Racial Harassment and Disability Discrimination | United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)

Employer refused to allow employee to return to work on crutches and fired her due to disability, federal agency says

GREENVILLE, SC – Georgia-based Community Loans of America, Inc. and its subsidiary, Carolina Title Loans, Inc., violated federal law by subjecting an employee to a racist work environment, disregarding her disability and dismissing her. because of this disability, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed today.

According to the EEOC complaint, from approximately August 2019 to September 2019, the employer’s branch operations manager in Greenville, South Carolina, subjected Shaneka Jenkins to serious and pervasive unwanted comments based on the Jenkins race, African American. Specifically, the branch manager made derogatory comments about black customers in Jenkins’ presence. She regularly used the n—-r word and said things like she “hated working with n—-rs” and “they never pay their bills”. Jenkins reported the racist comments directly to two different managers, but no action was taken to end the harassment. Jenkins also attempted to report the hostile working conditions via the employer’s employee hotline, but the company did not return his calls.

Additionally, according to the EEOC’s complaint, the employer refused to allow Jenkins to return to work after unpaid leave for disability-related surgery because she had to return with crutches or a wheelchair. The company told Jenkins she couldn’t return until she had any restrictions. By refusing to consider reasonable accommodation or allow Jenkins to return to work on crutches or a wheelchair, the employer forced Jenkins to extend his unpaid leave. In the end, rather than accept Jenkins back to work, the company fired her.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects employees from discrimination and harassment in the workplace. The EEOC filed an action in the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Community Loans of America and Carolina Title Loans, Inc. Civil Action No.: 6:22-cv-01000- DCC-JDA) after first attempting to reach a pre-litigation settlement through its voluntary conciliation process. The EEOC seeks monetary relief for Jenkins, including compensatory and punitive damages. The EEOC is also seeking an injunction against the company to end any ongoing discrimination based on race or disability and to take steps to prevent such unlawful conduct in the future.

“Employers cannot tolerate a racially hostile work environment, even if the racial slurs are directed at a customer rather than another employee,” said Melinda C. Dugas, Charlotte District Attorney for the EEOC. “Furthermore, an employer cannot impose a 100% cure policy to prevent employees with disabilities from returning to work. An employer has an affirmative duty to engage in an interactive process with the employee with a disability to determine if the employee can return to work with reasonable accommodation.

EEOC District Manager Thomas Colclough said: “All employees deserve and should expect a workplace free from racial harassment and discrimination on the basis of disability. The EEOC will continue to vigorously pursue remedies that ensure racial harassment and discrimination based on disability are eradicated from the workplace.

The EEOC advances opportunity in the workplace by enforcing federal laws prohibiting discrimination in employment. The EEOC’s Charlotte District Office is responsible for enforcing federal employment discrimination laws in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

When the Vespa scooter became the household name that was Chetak Bajaj

With the release of Piaggio, Bajaj’s scooter needed a new name. “Once I realized that the government was not going to renew the agreement with Piaggio, I knew that I had to abandon the Vespa brand for our scooters and APE for the three-wheelers,” explains Bajaj. “It was also clear to me that we should have the brand name ‘Bajaj’ for our vehicles. I’ve discussed it with Kakaji, I may have spoken to the board about it, and I’ve discussed it with our ad agency, Lintas, run by Alyque Padamsee.

Bajaj finally chose a double barrel – the Bajaj-Chetak, after Maharana Pratap Singh’s legendary horse that saved its rider at the Battle of Haldighati on June 21, 1576. “The name change was no problem as the Bajaj scooters and three-wheelers had a delivery time of ten years. Our brand easily replaced the Vespa,” explains Bajaj.

“Buying a scooter in the 1970s was complicated,” recalls scooter blogger Abhilash Gaur.

“You had to write a request to a dealer to grant a scooter for personal use. Then you went to a post office, opened a savings account and deposited a security deposit of 250 rupees. The post office gave you a booklet and you promised it to the scooter dealer as proof of intent to purchase. Then you waited your turn. On the lucky day, the dealer returned the passbook and ‘authorized’ you to withdraw your 250 rupees to make full payment. If you applied just before your wedding, you had children in school when you got your scooter. This procedure was set out in a rule called the “Scooter Control (Distribution and Sale) Order, 1960”.

India has scuttled its own scooter bazaar. The middle class was growing up and wanted wheels. The Planning Commission estimated that 210,000 scooters would be needed in 1973-74. A think tank, the National Council for Applied Economic Research (NCAER), calculated that annual demand would rise to 243,000 scooters by 1979-80. These figures were far from reality. The number of pending scooter reservations as of March 31, 1970 was already 84,883 for the Lambretta and 1,76,933 for the Vespa, renamed Bajaj-Chetak.

A customer lucky enough to be awarded one could resell it the next moment for double the price.

A Bajaj scooter has become a regular dowry request among middle-class families. Dealers unofficially charged customers huge bonuses to skip the line. Of course, for those who couldn’t wait, all they had to do was pay a bounty and pick up a Bajaj-Chetak from a thriving black market.

“A few people might skip the long line,” recalls Bajaj. “The government formulated a foreign exchange program under which if the customer paid for his Bajaj-Chetak in foreign currency, he would get early delivery.” The idea also went over well at Bajaj America’s headquarters, which was headed by David Jones at the time.

At best, however, the US response to the Chetak has been lukewarm. “As a result, Bajaj introduced a system whereby Indians in the United States could buy Chetak, pay in dollars, and export it back to India to their relatives,” Jones explained. “Scooter recipients would avoid long waiting times and Bajaj would be able to source foreign currency.”

The diet worked out very well with everyone happy. “400 scooters were re-exported to India,” Jones said. “Despite the fact that the scooters are made in India and possibly used in India, they still have to travel to and from the United States to go through bureaucratic formalities. The scooters are unloaded at a Bajaj America warehouse in Columbia, SC, and shipped back without even being unpacked. The shipping carriers have now granted us the privilege of special return freight rates. »

Under the Morarji Desai administration, life became breathing room for scooter manufacturers when the Scooter Control (Distribution and Sale) Order of 1960 was guillotined on January 1, 1978.

“However, given the huge backlog of pending orders for ‘Bajaj’ scooters with our dealers and to ensure fair distribution,” Bajaj realized, “for some time, we had to continue the process of distributing scooters similar to the existing one before the order was withdrawn.

Bajaj adds: “I was always under pressure from workers, dealers and salespeople to raise scooter prices and share the higher margins, but I refused. The shortage regime meant that they earned money. The quota scheme’s market premium, apart from customers, went to a few dealers and brokers who made it big by first booking their orders and then selling scooters in the dark when their turn came.

An exceptional case once crossed Bajaj’s table: a personal request from Air Chief Marshal Idris H Latif to grant a priority scooter.

“In the early 1970s, Latif recalls, I commanded our fighter and bomber base at Lohegaon, Poona, a base of about 10,000 people, including a number of civilians. One of them, Vincent, was a key member of my team. The Air Force is always on call, twenty-four hours a day. With the Bangladesh conflict approaching, we were on high alert. Vincent lived far from the camp with his family of four, including a severely disabled daughter. And clearly, it was becoming very, very difficult for him to be available 24 hours a day, in the short term. One morning, with great hesitation, I was able to see him, he asked me if I could help him buy a Bajaj scooter as a “priority”. It was a precious commodity in short supply. With great hesitation, thinking a lot about Vincent, I agreed to write to Mr. Rahul Bajaj, a person I had only heard of, but never met. Explaining the circumstances at some length, I asked “if, as a particular case…” Within a week, I had a personal answer: of course!

4 things you need to know about them

If you need cash fast, a title loan may be the answer. These loans are relatively easy to obtain, but there are a few things you need to know before applying. In this blog post, we’ll discuss four important things you need to know about title lending. We’ll also give you some tips on how to get the best deal on a title loan. So if you are considering applying for a title loan, be sure to read this article first!

Raten Kauf
  1. What are title loans?

Title loans are a type of secured loan. This means that the loan is secured by collateral – in this case, your car. If you fail to repay the loan, the lender can seize your car and sell it to recover their losses. Therefore, title loans tend to have higher interest rates than other types of loans.

Also, title loans are usually short-term loans, which means you’ll have to pay them back fairly quickly. If you are not sure that you can repay the loan on time, it is best to avoid applying for it. This way, you don’t risk having your car taken back. On the other hand, see Confront the Red for the best title loan resources and guides so you know you can pay off the loan quickly. After all, a title loan is great for getting some quick cash. Also, if you’ve opted for title loans, be sure to research the best interest rate before applying. Some lenders may offer lower rates than you’ll find at traditional banks.

  1. How do title loans work?

When you apply for a title loan, the lender will appraise your car to determine its value. They will then give you a loan based on a percentage of the value of your car. The typical loan amount is between 25% and 50% of the car’s value. So if your car is worth $5,000, you might be able to get a loan of up to $2,500. Most lenders will give you between 30 and 90 days to repay the loan. If you can’t repay the loan within that time, you may have to renew the loan or risk losing your car. The most important thing to remember is that you will have to repay the loan, plus interest and fees. So be sure to budget accordingly!

  1. What are the requirements?

The requirements for obtaining a title loan vary from lender to lender, but you will generally need to provide some general information. You will need to show ID, proof of income and your car title. You may also be required to provide a copy of your driver’s license and registration of your vehicle. Namely, the lender will want to make sure that you are the legal owner of the car and have the ability to repay the loan. Therefore, it is important to have all of these documents ready before applying for a title loan. More so, make sure the information on all these documents is up-to-date and accurate.

  1. How much can I borrow?

The amount you can borrow when you apply for a title loan depends on the value of your car. The lender will appraise your vehicle and determine how much they are willing to lend you. However, it is important to remember that you will probably only be able to borrow part of the value of your car. This is because the lender wants to make sure they can recoup their losses if you fail to repay the loan. You may be able to get a loan for up to 50% of the value of your car, but it’s important to remember that interest rates will be higher than with other types of loans.

For example, if your car is worth $5,000, you might be able to get a loan for $2,500. However, the interest rate on this loan could reach 25%. This means that you will have to repay the loan in full plus interest within a relatively short period of time. This can be difficult to do, so it’s important to make sure you can afford the monthly payments before applying for a title loan.

So this is it. These are four important things to know about title loans. If you’re considering applying for it, be sure to do your research and shop around for the best deal. And, most importantly, make sure you can afford the monthly payments before you sign on the dotted line!

Brave Vespa Scooter takes on the BMW M3 in a head-to-head drag race

the BMW The M3 is an icon of automotive history that other manufacturers try to copy as a reference in their sports cars. When BMW announces the E92 M3 concept car Back in 2007, enthusiastic fans loved seeing a high-revving V8 bearing the M3 name.

Although the M3 and the standard 3 Series continue to get bigger after each generation, many consider the E92 M3 to be one of the last true BMW cars as it was the last naturally aspirated engine before BMW switched to turbocharging.

Rivals of the BMW E92 M3 include the Audi RS4, Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG and even the Lexus IS-F. However, things are different when you start comparing it to a small Italian scooter. While Vespa is everyone’s favorite Italian scooter manufacturer, racing against a German muscle car is pretty rare.

In the Officially Gassed – OG video, a modified Vespa scooter takes on BMW’s only M3 with a naturally aspirated V8, the E92.

Italian scooter versus German sports car

The E92 M3 is a powerhouse when it comes to performance and handling. The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V8 develops around 430 hp. Combining that power with the optional DCT (dual-clutch transmission), you can expect a 0-60 mph time of around 4.5 seconds. With that in mind, what can a 43hp 1-cylinder Vespa scooter do against such a powerful car?

RELATED: 19 Modified Vespas We’d Ride On Any MotorcycleWhile 43hp doesn’t seem like a lot compared to the M3, the Vespa started life with just 4hp. With 10 times the power of a standard Vespa scooter and about the same weight, this little scooter is fast.

The scooter achieves an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 268 hp per ton. Believe it or not, it’s exactly the same power-to-weight ratio as the E92 M3.

The first race begins with the Vespa taking the lead. However, the power of the E92 V8 kicks in and it is able to win the race. The next two races are better for the M3, but the conclusion is the same. Although the Vespa is fast, it lacks the high-end speed and stability of the BMW.

E9X M3 future classic car

Laguna Seca Blue E92 BMW M3 Coupe

Although the E9X generation M3 is a modern sports car, it is the last M3 without a turbocharger and most certainly the last M3 with a V8 engine. This M3 is also the last M3 to feature hydraulic steering before switching to an electronically assisted system.

RELATED: These are our favorite features of the BMW E92 M3Like previous M3 generations, prices will continue to rise on the E9X M3s. If you can find a nice, well-maintained example at a good price, it could be a good investment judging by the prices of the M3 E30, E36 and E46 generations currently.

BMW M3 E92 Drag Races Highly Modified Vespa Scooter

Our drag racing hub currently consists of over 500 articles, featuring countless different combinations of vehicles. There are a fair number of races between a car and a motorcycle, but we’ve never seen a battle quite like this. It’s definitely one of the weirdest combos of all time and that makes it even more intriguing. Let’s look at the contenders first.

On the right is a BMW M3 of the E92 generation. It’s not a stock example though, and some of the modifications include a custom exhaust system, new cold air intake, and stage two ECU remapping. Power is around 430 horsepower (316 kilowatts), channeled to the rear wheels only via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The gearbox is probably the weakest link in this performance coupe, although at around 3,527 pounds (1,600 kilograms), its power-to-weight ratio is very decent.

On the left, in turn, is a Vespa scooter. At a glance, this combo doesn’t make much sense, but keep in mind this is a tuned Vespa with a 150cc single-cylinder engine that puts out 43bhp (32kW). ). Basically, it’s ten times more than factory production and there’s also a new five-disc clutch, bigger carburetor, bigger wheels, and more. With the rider, the weight of the Vespa is approximately 353 lbs (160 kg). Or, simply put, it has ten times fewer ponies and weighs ten times less than the BMW M3. The scooter drives its rear wheels through a four-speed transmission.

The video at the top of this page is almost 13 minutes long and after the vehicles and their drivers are introduced, there is a series of drag races. First, a classic quarter mile race from a standing start followed by a rolling start drag race. Both categories are subject to a best-of-three rule and vehicle performance is recorded with professional measuring equipment. With exactly the same power to weight ratio, these two machines are definitely worth your attention.

BMW M3 E92 Drag Races Vespa Scooter And It’s Closer Than You Think

We’ve seen our fair share of lopsided drag racing, but this one takes the proverbial cake. A crummy scooter is surely no match for an M car, is it? We’d normally agree, but this isn’t your ordinary Vespa. Come to think of it, the E92 BMW M3 isn’t exactly standard either, so the result might make your Sunday a little more fun.

In one corner we have a rare UK spec M3 E92 Coupe Limited Edition 500 finished in Santorini Blue. Its naturally aspirated V8 produced 420 horsepower a decade ago when the car was released. However, the 4.0-liter S65 now produces 430 hp thanks to a custom exhaust, cold air intake and software remapping.

The M3 E92 rolls on Michelin Pilot Sport 4 road tires and tips the scales at around 1,600 kilograms (3,527 pounds). Doing the math, it has a power-to-weight ratio of around 268 hp/metric ton. It comes from a time when M3s were strictly RWD, and this example has seven-speed DCT as an option. In 2012, BMW UK also offered the Edition 500 with a six-speed manual gearbox.

BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 1 830x525

The Bavarian machine takes on a two-wheeled contender, a Vespa 50 Special with a swapped 150cc air-cooled engine. It originally produced a huge four horsepower and now it pushes out a mighty 43 hp. Yes, the M3 E92 has ten times the power, but the little scooter weighs only 85 kg (187 pounds). Coincidentally, this gives it the same power-to-weight ratio as the BMW.

The M3 E92’s S65 V8 can spin at 8,300 rpm, but the scooter’s small but mighty monopot screams at 14,500 rpm. The Vespa is much faster in both drag races, but the M3 catches up and ultimately takes the win. The car and scooter were neck and neck in the early part of the roll races before the V8 proved its worth.

We know which of the two we would have and it is not the scooter. Riding in this two-wheeled madness takes a lot of courage, to say the least. We prefer to be surrounded by airbags and protected by a seat belt in the event of an accident.
