In March 2003, the EEOC district office in St. Louis, Missouri brought this suit against Clara Barton Hospital Association, Inc., a general health care facility, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas. The complaint alleged violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, a female employee claimed that after she complained of sexual harassment, she was demoted and eventually terminated. After some cursory discovery and the granting of a defense motion for a protective order, a consent decree was entered in February 2004.

In the consent decree, the parties agreed that the defendant would refrain from retaliating and discriminating on the basis of sex, pay the aggrieved female $43,500, place a copy of the consent decree in her employee file, allow her to submit a letter of resignation to be placed in her employee file, provide EEO training, post an EEO policy, sign and implement an EEO policy, make the EEO policy part of its handbook, and submit semiannual compliance reports to the EEOC. No fees or costs were awarded. The terms of the decree ran for two years.
