Case Summary

The EEOC's Seattle district office sued the Larry H. Miller Corporation on June 29, 2001, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII when it discriminated based on sex (female) by creating a hostile work environment, leading to the constructive discharge of the complainant. The parties entered into a consent decree on May 21, 2002, which stipulated that the defendant would pay the complainant $30,000 in damages, expunge the complainant's employment record, provide a neutral reference to the complainant, post a notice of compliance with Title VII, revise and distribute its EEO policy, and report to the EEOC that it has done so.
