On May 12th, 2000, several employees of Eagle Global Logistics filed a class-action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania named Dube v. Eagle. Plaintiffs sued the Eagle Airfreight under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Equal Pay Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The plaintiffs, represented by a combination of public interest and private attorneys, sought declaratory and injunctive relief requiring Eagle Airfreight to change its discriminatory workplace practices.

Specifically, plaintiffs alleged that Eagle failed and refused to promote African Americans, Hispanics, and women into managerial positions. They further alleged that Eagle refused to hire the same groups of people into warehouse, delivery, and truck driver positions. Additionally, plaintiffs alleged that Eagle maintained a hostile working environment in respect to the terms of their employment, including inadequately addressing incidents of workplace harassment. Finally, the plaintiffs alleged that Eagle paid members of the aforementioned groups less than their Caucasian and/or male counterparts for the same work.

On February 1st, 2001, the District Court granted the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) motion to intervene on behalf of the plaintiffs. On the same day, the court also granted the EEOC’s motion to transfer jurisdiction from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division.

On October 1st, 2001, the EEOC announced a settlement agreement with Eagle for the amount of $9,000,000. The money was a combination of $8,500,000 in damages and settlement awards for the employees who were part of the original class and $500,000 to fund a leadership and professional training program for women and minorities at Eagle.
