Case Summary

In September 2002, the EEOC district office in Los Angeles, California brought this suit against Bazaar Del Mundo, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. The complaint states that a Black female alleged that the defendant violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when it refused to hire her, and similarly situated Blacks, for service positions. After two settlement conferences, a consent decree was entered in August 2003.

In the consent decree, the parties agreed that the defendant would pay the class of complainants $120,000, refrain from discriminating on the basis of race, hire an EEO consultant to ensure compliance, post and distribute an EEO notice, provide four hours of EEO training, make a good faith effort to hire five percent Blacks out of its total hiring each year, and submit annual audit reports. No fees or costs were awarded. The terms of the agreement ran for three years.
