Under the settlement agreement, Warner Bros., a division of Time Warner Entertainment Company, agreed to the pay $143,744 in back pay and interest to the 17 workers.

"A key component of OFCCP's mission is to make sure workers are paid without regard to their race, color, religion, sex or national origin," says Elaine L. Chao, secretary of labor. "We are committed to strong enforcement against compensation discrimination, and are pleased to have reached this agreement on behalf of the workers."

The settlement agreement concluded a routine compliance review by the department's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), which has jurisdiction over employers that contract with the federal government. Warner Bros. sells motion pictures, videos, and DVDs to federal military exchanges, and provides other services to the Armed Forces Radio and Television Services.

OFCCP is an agency of the Employment Standards Administration that enforces Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended. These laws prohibit federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating in employment based on race, gender, color, religion, national origin, disability or covered veteran status.
