Case Summary

On May 10, 2004, several people who applied to work at Cintas filed a class-action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. Plaintiffs sued Cintas under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Plaintiffs, represented by private attorneys, sought monetary damages. Specifically, plaintiffs alleged that she personally applied for three positions as a Route Sales Driver with Cintas over the course of six months and was denied three times despite being wel…

On May 10, 2004, several people who applied to work at Cintas filed a class-action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. Plaintiffs sued Cintas under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Plaintiffs, represented by private attorneys, sought monetary damages. Specifically, plaintiffs alleged that she personally applied for three positions as a Route Sales Driver with Cintas over the course of six months and was denied three times despite being well qualified for the positions. For the class action component, plaintiff alleged that Cintas' behavior affected more than 100 women who applied for positions with the company in the state of Michigan and were denied jobs between June 12, 1999 and the date of filing. The case was assigned to Judge Sean F. Cox.

On September 2, 2005, plaintiffs filed an amended complaint. This complaint modified the scope of the class by changing it from Michigan specific to a nationwide class that potentially covered thousands of positions. Furthermore, plaintiffs alleged that the specific mechanism that allowed this discrimination was the wide latitude given to regional hiring managers, who were exclusively men.

In December 2005, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a motion to intervene in the case.

On March 31, 2009, the District Court denied plaintiff's motion to certify class on the grounds that there was not commonality among the class members, not typicality among the class members, and that the representative plaintiff would not adequately represent the members of the class. This denial of class certification was appealed to the Sixth Circuit, which vacated the District Court's ruling on November 9, 2012.

After this ruling, a writ of certiorari was filed with the Supreme Court, which was denied on October 9, 2013. Over the next two years, it appears that the parties engaged in settlement negotiations.

On November 25, 2015, the parties entered into a consent decree, where Cintas agreed to pay $1.5 million in backpay to class members and implement broad solutions to fix the issues identified, including hiring training, the drafting of new hiring practices, and monitoring by the EEOC. The class was defined as: "Women who applied to work at a Cintas rental facility in the state of Michigan but were not hired as a SSR from January 1, 1999, through March 31, 2005."

Then, on December 21, 2017, the parties agreed to amend the consent decree. In the initial consent decree, any remaining funds of the $1.5 million dollar were to be delivered to class members evenly. However, this amendment changed the distribution arrangement so that any remaining funds would instead be delivered to a charity that assisted women in finding employment.

The consent decree remained in force until March 15, 2018. The case is now closed.
