The Chicago District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against the Dial Corporation, who makes soap and other hygiene products, in May 1999, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The suit was based on sexual harassment and retaliation claims in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The docket indicates that the parties had numerous discovery motions, mostly protective orders and orders to compel, and two individuals intervened. The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment, which was granted in part and denied in part. The defendant filed an interlocutory appeal of that ruling, which was dismissed by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

The terms of the consent decree included both injunctive and monetary relief. Dial had to pay $10,000,000 into a settlement fund that was to be dispersed to eligible class members. Because the suit was based on a general hostile work environment at the Montgomery, Illinois facility, the class was open to any female working at the facility before the suit was started, who provides evidence they were harassed. If they are admitted by the EEOC to the class then they are eligible to receive a portion of the settlement fund, up to a $300,000 maximum for any member of the class. The amount given to each member of the class is to be determined by the EEOC and the Court before the payments are made. Dial was ordered not to retaliate against any person who complains of harassment and they are not allowed to harass or discriminate based on gender. In addition they must rework their harassment policy and complaint procedures. There will be three decree monitors who will provide assistance to Dial during this time and help ensure that they follow the required aspects of the decree. All current employees and managers at the Montgomery facility must undergo EEO training, and all future employees must undergo it as well. The decree included a dispute resolution policy to help avoid future court action; however, either party may seek court enforcement if the dispute resolution fails.
