Case Summary

In December 2004, the Chicago Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Jewel Food Stores, Inc. and Albertson's, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging discrimination on the basis of sex, female, and race, African-American, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

In December 2004, the Chicago Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Jewel Food Stores, Inc. and Albertson's, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging discrimination on the basis of sex, female, and race, African-American, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the complaint alleged that the defendant subjected the complaining parties to a hostile work environment and retaliated against one party for opposing these practices. Following discovery and while the defendant's motion for summary judgment was pending, the parties settled the lawsuit through a consent decree in June 2007.

The two-year decree, containing anti-discrimination and retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: make compliance reports, keep records, allow the EEOC access for monitoring, post notice of employee rights, provide EEO training, and pay $200,000 to be distributed among four individuals. The docket sheet doesn't show any further enforcement took place; the case was presumably closed in 2009.
