Case Summary

In September 1997, the Memphis Office of the EEOC brought this lawsuit against Youth Home, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas. The complaint alleged violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against the charging party and others similarly situated on the basis of their pregnancy. One claimant intervened in the lawsuit in April 1998. Following a settlement conference and a partial motion for summary judgment by the defendant, the parties settled the lawsuit in June 1998 through a consent decree.

The two-year decree, containing an anti-discrimination clause, required the defendant to post notice of employee rights, refrain from readopting practice requiring and spreading information about an employee's pregnancy, and pay $6,700 in compensatory damages to be divided between three individuals.
