The EEOC sued Greg & Deb's, Inc.; Mark & Greg's, Inc.; and the offending owners on June 12, 2006 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendants violated Title VII when they discriminated against the intervenor employee, who intervened in August, 2006, based on sex (female) by creating a sexually harassing work environment which lead to her constructive discharge. The parties settled their dispute with a consent decree on March 7, 2007, and the intervening plaintiff entered a stipulated dismissal on April 8, 2007. The consent decree stipulated that the defendants would pay the intervenor $150,000 in damages, provide EEO training for all employees, post and distribute notices of EEO rights, annually report complaints of sexual harassment to the EEOC, and allow the EEOC to enter the defendants' business to examine records and interview employees to ensure compliance with the consent decree.
