Case Summary

On September 29, 2006, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed suit in the Indianapolis U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana against Mer Corporation (doing business as Dancers Show Club) on behalf of a female employee. According to the EEOC, Mer had violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq.) by forcing the employee to take early maternity leave, which resulted in loss of her position as a bartender.

On September 29, 2006, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed suit in the Indianapolis U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana against Mer Corporation (doing business as Dancers Show Club) on behalf of a female employee. According to the EEOC, Mer had violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq.) by forcing the employee to take early maternity leave, which resulted in loss of her position as a bartender. The EEOC sought its costs, monetary and injunctive relief for the employee, including policy reform, back pay, compensation for emotional harm, and punitive damages.

The employee intervened in the case with the Court's approval (Judge Larry J. McKinney) on October 27, 2006. The employee proceeded on the same grounds as the EEOC and sought substantially the same relief, though the employee's complaint contained greater factual detail.

The parties reached a settlement, which the Court entered as a consent decree on November 20, 2007. The decree provided monetary relief ($6,000 in back pay and $30,500 in compensatory damages) for the employee and contained a variety of injunctive provisions. Under the decree Mer was required not to discriminate or retaliate, to post an EEOC notice, to expunge all references to the discrimination charge from the employee's file and make no mention of it in references, to notify all current and future employees with hiring/firing authority that pregnancy is not a factor to be considered in employment decisions, to provide all managers and supervisors with sex discrimination training, and to report annually to the EEOC the reasons for discharge when a pregnant employee has been fired. The parties bore their own costs. No further court activity appears on the docket, and the case is now closed.
