(AP) An administrative law judge with the U.S. Department of Labor has ordered Bank of America to pay black job applicants more than $2 million in back wages and interest to settle a discrimination case.


A statement from the agency said the Charlotte-based bank applied unfair and inconsistent selection criteria, leading to the rejection of qualified black applicants for teller and entry-level clerical and administrative positions.


The decision affects 1,147 applicants. It awards a total of $964,033 to 1,034 applicants who were rejected for jobs in 1993 and $1,217,560 to 113 individuals who were rejected between 2002 and 2005.


Judge Linda S. Chapman rejected the bank's arguments for a lower award on the grounds that they could not make use of missing records that they had failed to keep.
