Safelite AutoGlass, a vehicle glass repair and replacement company based in Ohio, has recently been accused of violating federal law by refusing to hire a qualified female applicant. This allegation was made by the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in a lawsuit filed against the company.
The controversy surrounding Safelite does not end there. Syfko's claim that Belron (or Safelite) would not start repairing protracted fissures due to the change in the ROLAGS standard has been disputed. Safelite has argued that their windshield replacement process complies with the Safety Standard for Car Glass Replacement (AGRSS), which, according to them, is safe for everyone who rides in that car. Safelite has been in business for more than seventy years and is now the largest vehicle glass repair and replacement organization in the United States.
Despite its success, the company has been facing a lot of criticism due to its alleged violation of federal law and its questionable practices when it comes to windshield repair and replacement. The EEOC's lawsuit against Safelite is still ongoing and it remains to be seen what the outcome will be. In the meantime, it is important for consumers to be aware of the controversy surrounding Safelite and to make sure they are getting quality service from a reputable company when it comes to their vehicle glass repair and replacement needs.
