Case Summary

On December 8, 2005, six employees filed a class action complaint against their employer, Best Buy Co., Inc. under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq., 42 U.S.C. § 1981, and California Government Code § 12940 et seq. in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

On December 8, 2005, six employees filed a class action complaint against their employer, Best Buy Co., Inc. under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq., 42 U.S.C. § 1981, and California Government Code § 12940 et seq. in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, alleged gender and racial discrimination, and they sought injunctive and declaratory relief, punitive damages, back pay, and front pay. Specifically, the plaintiffs claimed that Best Buy had discriminated against women and minority individuals -- Latinos and African Americans -- on the basis of gender, race, color, and/or national origin with respect to recruitment, hiring, job assignments, transfers, promotions, compensation, allocation of weekly hours, and other terms and conditions of employment. Further, the plaintiffs alleged that Best Buy operated through a corporate culture of racial and gender stereotypes and enforced a nationwide corporate policy of preferring white male employees.

On January 6, 2009, the plaintiffs filed their Third Amended Class Action Complaint against all of the defendants. Subsequently, there were many administrative tasks and declarations in support of class action certification.

On June 17, 2011, the parties submitted a proposed consent decree. The consent decree awarded $200,000 to the named parties and required the defendant to implement neutral hiring, training, and promotion procedures, perform manager assessments, institute a complaint and dispute resolution process, and undergo monitoring. On August 17, 2011, the plaintiffs moved for attorney fees and reimbursement of costs and expenses in the amount of $9,999,999. The court approved both on November 9, 2011. The court retained jurisdiction to enforce the consent decree for four years.

At the end of the four-year period, the monitor filed a certification of compliance on December 8, 2015, indicating the expiration of the term of the consent decree. The monitor was satisfied that Best Buy had complied with the consent decree. Best Buy had done so by, among other things, maintaining non-discrimination and anti-harassment policies and internal complaint and anti-retaliation procedures, ensuring dissemination and awareness of such policies, adopting policies to promote diversity in management positions, and improving training of employees. The case is now closed.
