America First Legal’s (AFL) Center for Legal Equality filed a federal civil rights complaint against Nordstrom for engaging in the illegal practice of hiring based on race, color, sex, and national origin” — to exclude white people, especially men.
The complaint was filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on Friday.
According to AFL, “The company’s recent annual report suggests that it is using numerical quotas for hiring, training, and promotion and that management has taken extraordinary steps to ensure that these quotas are deeply embedded in its business operations. For example, to ‘increase the representation of Black and Latinx [sic] individuals in people-manager roles by at least 50% on average by the end of 2025, management ‘has operationalized diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging through consistent reviews with Erik B. Nordstrom, our Chief Executive Officer, and Farrell B. Redwine, our Chief Human Resources Officer.’”
The organization found that according to Nordstrom management’s “Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Fact Sheet,” by the end of 2025, it “will increase the representation of Black and Latinx populations in people-leadership roles by at least 50%” and through its internship and other early-in-career programs, it “will create opportunity for underrepresented populations with an aim of 50% representation.”
