In June 2002, the Phoenix District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Newonics, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah alleging discrimination on the basis of sex in violation of the Equal Pay Act of 1963 ("EPA") and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the defendant paid the charging party, a female employee, at wage rates less than it paid its male employees for completing essentially the same work. In addition, the defendant retaliated against the charging party by terminating her when she complained of the discrimination. After some scheduling orders, the parties settled through consent decree in December 2003.

The two-year decree required the defendant to: expunge the charging party's personnel file from all references to the charge of discrimination, post a notice of the consent decree, provide annual EPA and Title VII training, develop and distribute a written anti-discrimination policy, report to the EEOC at specified intervals, and pay $20,000 to the charging party.
