The EEOC's San Francisco district office sued Early Warning Ventures Incorporated, d/b/a Tree Frog Tavern, on July 21, 2000 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California. The EEOC's complaint is unavailable. However, the court's dismissal order and attached settlement agreement contain the EEOC's causes of action. The EEOC alleged that Early Warning violated Title VII when it discriminated based on sex (female). The parties settled the case out of court and the case was dismissed on September 7, 2000. The settlement agreement stipulated that Early would pay $1040.25 in damages to the aggrieved employee, implement a sexual harassment policy in accordance with the settlement agreement, post a notice of compliance with Title VII, forego discriminating in the future, and allow the EEOC to ensure compliance with the settlement agreement.
