Restaurant chain Texas Roadhouse is currently battling a lawsuit lodged against it by the Obama administration in the form of the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over allegations of age discrimination, the Hill reported on March 23.
Republicans on the House of Representatives education and workforce committee held a hearing on March 24 to address what they call a problem that has been plaguing the EEOC. The group believes that the EEOC has been filing suits against businesses that did not stem from any complaint.
Texas Roadhouse chief executive officer and founder W. Kent Taylor said the agency is targeting his company and noted that it should “explain to Congress why it chases no-complaint cases when there are over 70,000 cases of racial and other complaints of discrimination that are back-logged on and not acted on.”
