Workers and Students Crash HEI's Annual Investor Meeting
May 13, 2011
At this year's Annual HEI Investor meeting, a group of HEI workers, along with students from five universities invested in the company, came to the meeting, protesting working conditions at HEI properties and the company's disregard for the law. Inside the meeting, students distributed information to shed light on HEI's recent legal troubles.
In March a jury in Massachusetts ruled that HEI broke the law when it retaliated against a former Senior Vice President of the company for filing a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination. The jury ordered HEI to pay the former executive $2.25M in damages. The federal judge in that case recently doubled the damages to $4.5 Million.
