DOJ sues Entergy over affirmative action non-compliance

The DOJ says Entergy has refused repeated requests to submit documents required of government contractors

Energy company Entergy Corp. has more issues than just a summer air conditioning power surge — the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) sued Entergy on June 17 for failing to submit proof of required affirmative action programs.

According to the DOJ, Entergy has refused repeated requests to submit written affirmative action programs and records since 2012. The government says that, as a federal contractor, Entergy must comply with federal law to not discriminate against employees and job applicants on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability or protected veteran status.
