On June 20, 2005, the San Francisco District Office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission brought this action in the Northern District of California under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 against Amelco Electric S.F., Inc. and Amelco Corporation. The EEOC, who brought suit on behalf of a male electrician and other similarly situated employees who worked for Amelco, asked the court for injunctive relief and monetary damages, claiming that Amelco had subjected its employees to disparate treatment, a hostile work environment, and termination because of their sex, race, national origin, and religion. The EEOC further alleged that Amelco retaliated against an employee and fired him for his complaints of discrimination. The EEOC filed a similar action on behalf of different Amelco employees on May 4, 2006 (see EEOC v. Amelco Electric Company, Inc, EE-CA-0013 on this site). Though the cases were not consolidated, the parties agreed to settle both matters simultaneously.

The Settlement Agreement, which took effect on August 28, 2006, bound Amelco to not retaliate against the individuals who complained of discrimination the EEOC, and awarded the plaintiffs $125,000.
