Case Summary

The EEOC's Memphis office filed this suit on December 22, 2004 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee (Memphis) against Indmar Products Company, Inc. The EEOC alleged that defendant allowed its employees to harass the complainant based on his race (black). On April 18, 2005 the court set a trial date: April 17, 2006. Prior to the date set for trial, a consent decree was entered on March 8, 2006. Judgment pursuant to the consent decree was entered on March 13, 2006. In the consent decree the defendant agreed to provide training to its managerial and supervisory employees, post notice of EEO rights and refrain from discriminating or retaliating against its employees. The defendant also agreed to pay the complainant $25,000, expunge the complainant's record, and provide the complainant a neutral employment reference.

The decree was entered in 2006 and scheduled to last 2007. No further docket entries exist, so the case is closed.
