Case Summary

In June 1999, the EEOC's Washington D.C. office filed this suit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina against The GEHL Corporation d/b/a GEHL Group alleging violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the EEOC alleged that defendant had refused to hire females for telemarketing sales positions. After a little bit of discovery, in April 2000, the parties moved for, and were granted, a stay of the action pending settlement negotiations. Then, in July 2001, they returned with a consent decree that was adopted by the court. The decree noted that the defendant no longer did business in the United States or abroad. As a result, various injunctive measures in the consent decree were conditioned on the defendant resuming business operations. However, the decree ordered a plan whereby the defendant would pay out $70,000 to the charging party and a class of similarly situated former female applicants for employment.
