The EEOC's San Francisco district office sued United Parcel Service on May 24, 2001 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII when it discriminated based on race (African American) by disproportionately punishing an employee for conduct based on race by discharging that employee. The parties entered into a consent decree on December 12, 2003, which stipulated that the defendant would pay the complainant $150,000 in damages, post a notice of compliance with Title VII, provide Title VII training to its managers, and distribute its non-discrimination policy to all employees.
