Wellpath, based in Tennessee, will pay $750,000 and provide “significant equitable relief” as part of a settlement in a lawsuit brought forth by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging unlawful religious discrimination against a candidate for a job, according to a Tuesday statement by the federal agency.
