The EEOC's San Francisco district office sued Den-Cal North, d/b/a Denny's Restaurant, Inc., on September 30, 1999 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California. The EEOC's complaint is unavailable, however the EEOC's causes of action are contained within the consent decree. The EEOC alleged that Den-Cal violated Title VII when it discriminated against three of its employees based on sex (female) by creating a hostile work environment, retaliating against two of its employees and constructively discharging one employee. The parties entered into the consent decree on November 20, 2000 which stipulated that Den-Cal would pay two of the aggrieved employees $70,000 each and the third employee $10,000; and implement training policies concerning sexual harassment and revise general policies of discrimination.
