A company that operates a Richmond grocery store will pay more than $10,000 to settle a sex-discrimination lawsuit. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the suit nearly two years ago against Food Rite Community Supermarket. The EEOC says Food Rite got sued after it refused to hire a woman for a part-time job as a driver. It quoted a manager who said he would not hire a woman because he feared a female driver would be at greater risk of being assaulted.
