Case Summary

In November 2003, the San Jose Local Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Entravision Communications Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

In November 2003, the San Jose Local Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Entravision Communications Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint alleged that the defendant subjected the two charging parties and a group of similarly situated female employees to a sexually hostile work environment, resulting in the constructive discharge of one of the charging parties and the retaliatory discharge of the other in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. After some scheduling orders, the parties participated in mediation in November 2004, resulting in a tentative settlement. The parties reached a final settlement in February 2005 through a consent decree.

The two-year decree, containing non-discrimination and non-retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: develop a harassment policy and complaint procedure, report to the EEOC at specified intervals, provide annual Title VII training for all its employees, and pay $185,000.

The decree was entered in 2005 and scheduled to last 2007. No further docket entries exist, so the case is presumably closed.
