Owners of the Planet Fitness Ewing (NJ), aka New England Fitness Ewing Inc., agreed yesterday to pay $25,000 to settle a discrimination lawsuit brought by a former employee, according to an announcement from the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office.
Rachel Bronner, who is African-American, worked for Planet Fitness Ewing from June 2012 through early March 2013. In May 2013 she filed a complaint with the federal Equal Employment OpporRetunity Commission (EEOC) alleging that she was wrongly passed over for a promotion and subsequently terminated because of her race and gender.
The settlement agreement states that Planet Fitness Ewing settled the claim while still denying “allegations that it unlawfully discriminated” against the employee, and that “the payment does not reflect any admission of wrongdoing or adjudication of the merits of this case.”
