( – Arthur Grand Technologies Inc., a tech company based in Virginia, will be required to pay thousands of dollars in fines for its “whites only” job posting.

The Labor and Justice departments have fined Arthur Grand, a minority-owned federal contractor, a $7,500 civil penalty. The departments have also ordered the Virginia-based company to pay $1,000 each to the 31 people who complained about the posting.

Kristen Clarke, the assistant attorney general for the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, described the actions as “shameful” in a statement. 

In March 2023, Arthur Grand initiated advertising for a Salesforce business analyst and insurance claims position based in Fallas, Texas.

The job posting restricted eligible candidates to “US Born Citizens [white]” who reside “within 60 miles from Dallas,” it included a note “[Don’t share with candidates].”

The job posting drew widespread criticism on social media. The DOJ opened an investigation.

However, the company denied approving the job post, claiming an employee for its Indian subsidiary had posted it.

The DOJ indicated the job posting was in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

The Labor Department relayed that the company violated an executive order preventing federal contractors from discriminating against candidates based on national origin, race, and other protected characteristics.

Acting Director of the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, Michele Hodge, released a statement highlighting the department’s commitment to hold “federal contractors accountable for outrageous discriminatory practices.”

Hodge added that companies accepting federal contracts like “Arthur Grand” couldn’t have “a ‘whites only’ hiring process.”

Going forward, the company will be monitored to ensure compliance with anti-discrimination laws. Arthur Grand will be required to revise its employment policies and train employees on the requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
