Case Summary

In September 2000, the New York District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against RMC Management Company, Inc., aka Remitco Management Corporation, L.L.C., in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The only document publicly available regarding the case is the docket; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. However, it appears from the docket that the complaint alleged discrimination on the basis of sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The parties took part in a settlement conference in early June 2001 and settled a few weeks later through a consent decree. According to the docket, the consent decree required the defendant to pay a total of $60,000 to be distributed among four claimants.
