Case Summary

In April 2004, the Chicago District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Continental Airlines, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging discrimination on the basis of race and sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

In April 2004, the Chicago District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Continental Airlines, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging discrimination on the basis of race and sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the complaint alleged that the defendant subjected the charging party, a Black female employee, to a hostile work environment and demoted her because of her race and sex. After several status and settlement conferences and some discovery disputes, the defendant filed a motion for summary judgment in August 2005 which was granted in part and denied in part in January 2006. After a couple more settlement and status conferences, the parties settled in late December 2006 through a consent decree.

The eighteen-month decree, containing non-discrimination and non-retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: post a notice of the decree, keep records of all complaints of gender discrimination, report to the EEOC at specified intervals, provide Title VII training for all its employees, and pay $40,000. The docket sheet does not show any further enforcement; the case was presumably closed in 2008.
