Case Summary

In June 2004, the Los Angeles District Office of the EEOC filed this suit against Diversified Paratransit, Inc., Paul's Yellow Cab (d/b/a Yellow Cab), and Inland Express, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The complaint alleged that the defendants violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by discriminating against the charging party and other employees on the basis of race and sex.

In June 2004, the Los Angeles District Office of the EEOC filed this suit against Diversified Paratransit, Inc., Paul's Yellow Cab (d/b/a Yellow Cab), and Inland Express, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The complaint alleged that the defendants violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by discriminating against the charging party and other employees on the basis of race and sex. Complainant alleged that she was subjected to racially and sexually derogatory comments and that defendant failed to take immediate corrective and preventive measures after complainant reported the harassment. After a great number of discovery disputes, the EEOC's motion for partial summary judgment was granted in late June 2005. Shortly thereafter, the parties settled and entered into a consent decree in early August 2005.

The five-year decree, which contained both anti-discrimination and anti-retaliation clauses, required the defendant to revise the employee handbook to include Title VII policies and internal complaint procedures. In addition, the defendant agreed to: provide Title VII compliance evaluations, provide Title VII training to all employees, post an EEOC-provided Title VII notice, provide positive references for the charging parties, retain records of Title VII complaints, report at specified intervals to the EEOC, and pay $100,000 to the charging parties. The docket sheet shows that no further enforcement took place; the case was presumably closed in 2010.
