Case Summary

In September 1999, the San Antonio District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Enterprise Rent-A-Car Company of Texas in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown.

In September 1999, the San Antonio District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Enterprise Rent-A-Car Company of Texas in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. It appears from the consent decree that the complaint alleged discrimination in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 ("ADEA"). With little other action in the case, the parties seem to have reached a tentative settlement agreement in March 2000. After some amendments to the agreement, the parties entered into a final settlement through a consent decree in June 2000.

The three-year decree, containing a non-discrimination clause, required the defendant to: post a notice of the non-discrimination, distribute its employee referral policy to all its employees, provide ADEA training for its managers, report to the EEOC at specified intervals, utilize non-discriminatory criteria for hiring, conduct annual audits, retain employment applications, and pay $300,000.
