Case Summary

The Birmingham District Office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama, against Barloworld Handling LP. The complaint, filed in December 2005, alleged race discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and age discrimination in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act; specifically that Defendant had discharged the charging party because of his race (black) and his age (62). In June 2006 the parties entered into a consent decree, which was valid for two years. The decree required Defendant to pay the charging party a total of $70,000, provide anti-discrimination training to its employees and post a notice of non-discrimination at its facility. The decree was to last for two years. The docket sheet doesn't show any further enforcement took place; the case was presumably closed in 2008.
