Roughly 380 one-time applicants to the Baltimore County Police could receive back pay from the county after they were rejected for hiring due to written examinations that the U.S. Department of Justice found to be racially discriminatory.
The back pay collected by individuals is expected to range from $445.29 to up to $7,862.77 per person, based on when they might have been hired without the biased exams, according to documents filed in federal court by county and Justice Deparment officials.
