"to over 1,300 workers involved in the settlement"

Wait, what? How many people work at B&H?

The number involves employees over several years, I believe. From previous article: "The government has some specific and serious accusations against B&H as a result of a review conducted between January 2011 and January 2013."

Just guessing here, but that could include people who applied for a job and felt they were turned down due to discrimination...

Online sales are a BIG deal. Like Amazon, B&H sells a lot more than photo gear. When you have a large operation like this you need people or robots doing warehousing, shipping and receiving as well as customer-service and sales.

On B &H's opening page https://www.bhphotovideo.com they list computers, home entertainment, pro audio and telescopes/binoculars as well as cameras, etc.

Queue the B&H defenders, who will post momentarily claiming that B&H is faultless, and just paid this money to make the lawsuit go away. 3, 2, 1....

I never really spent much money at B&H, local outfit matched their prices and I'd much rather support local business. Given the outcome of this allegations, B&H will not get anymore of my money. There are other places out there that deserve it more.

I knew about these stories.

always order from adorama when I can. but b&h has better shipping deals. so it ends up being 50/50.

This is a positive. The workers get a payout and B&H will pull their socks up.

In this day and age we cannot support businesses that support discriminatory practices. B&H shame on you. Especially since you have such a strong Jewish background, you should know what it feels like to be discriminated against.

It's rare that we wouldn't price match to any equally reputable retailer - which B&H most certainly is. You only need email me: [email protected]

Stopped using B&H long time ago; their packaging standards were getting too bad to tolerate. And this ^.

I am not privvy to the case. But the settlement suggests wrongdoing was absolutely done - but to what degree I do not know. This being the Internet, people will believe, or think, what they will.

Pot-kettle-black.

Let him who is without sin...

And all of that stuff.
