The store was sued in 2007 by Hispanic employees who work in the warehouse and were paid less than their Jewish co-workers. The company settled without admitting any wrongdoing, paid out $4.3 million and agreed to regular monitoring by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Currently, seven women are accusing the company of paying female staffers less than their male counterparts -- and reserving the coveted sales positions almost exclusively for men.

KingCast says "A rose is a rose.... but apparently not everything is rosy at B & H Photo...."
No.... and in fact is smells more like shit than rose: I bought my Canon 60D and Rode SVM Stereo Mic from B&H Photo and I just recommended the store to more people, notwithstanding the presence of past and current serious Civil Rights cases. It is disturbing. I love my camera though.... but should I continue to support these guys, now that I am aware of these issues, it is giving me serious pause.
