Case Summary

On May 21, 2001, the Indianapolis and Milwaukee offices of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a class action lawsuit under Title VII against Bemis Company, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.

On May 21, 2001, the Indianapolis and Milwaukee offices of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a class action lawsuit under Title VII against Bemis Company, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. The defendants were a global manufacturer of flexible packaging and pressure sensitive materials based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with nearly 11,000 employees worldwide.

The EEOC claimed that the defendants had violated the rights of African American complainants by subjecting them to a hostile work environment. No private plaintiffs intervened in the suit.

On September 23, 2004, the parties entered into a consent decree, which was adopted by the Court the following day. Under the terms of the decree, the defendants paid the plaintiffs $245,000 in compensatory damages and placed $55,000 into an interest bearing account to be used as reward money for anyone providing information that lead to the criminal prosecution of any individuals perpetrating racial harassment in the Bemis, Inc. workplace. Any money that was left in the interest bearing account 90 days after the lawsuit was dismissed would be used to hire an outside consultant to conduct diversity training for the defendant's employees. Additionally, the defendant was required to post notice of the settlement of this case and to refrain from discrimination or retaliation in the future. The court maintained jurisdiction over enforcement of the consent decree for three years. We do not have a copy of the complaints in this case.

We have no further information on the case, and it presumably ended in 2007, when the consent decree terminated.
