The EEOC's Indianapolis district office sued Keco Industries, Inc., a supplier of military equipment, on December 30, 2005 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky. The EEOC's complaint alleged that Keco violated Title VII when it discriminated against the intervenor employee, who intervened in December 2004, based on sex (female) because of her pregnancy by terminating her employment on that basis. The parties entered into a consent decree on January 28, 2005 which stipulated that Keco would not discriminate or retaliate in the future, pay $12,000 in damages to the intervenor, report compliance with the consent decree to the EEOC bi-annually, provide Title VII compliance training for its managerial and supervisory staff, and post a notice of compliance with Title VII.
