MACY’S SETTLEMENT FOR SHOPPER-PROFILING $650,000
Have you ever had a similar shopping trip?
Macy’s has agreed to pay a
settlement of $650,000 to settle the accusations of racial profiling in their
Manhattan’s Herald Square branch. The company also agreed to new policies allowing
police access to its security camera footage, and to investigate customer
complaints, report for 3 years on compliance of these issues, and keep better
records of any issues that may arise.
There was documentation of 18
African-American, Latino and other ethnic minorities in February 2013 stating
that between 2007-2013 they had been apprehended and detained at the store even
though they hadn’t attempted to steal anything.
