Pizza Hut Inc. will pay at least $160,000 and provide race-sensitivity training to tens of thousands of employees nationwide as part of the settlement of a racial discrimination lawsuit, the Chicago Tribune reported. A company officer said the sensitivity program had been in effect previously. The suit was filed by members of a black family who said they had not been allowed to celebrate a child's birthday in 1996 at a Pizza Hut restaurant in suburban Midlothian, Ill. According to court papers, Pizza Hut admitted no wrongdoing or liability.
