The Pittsburgh office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, against Jameson Memorial Hospital. The complaint, filed in February 2006, alleged race discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; specifically that Defendant denied the charging party the opportunity for a promotion because of her race (African American) and then retaliated against her for filing a charge of race discrimination against the company.

The charging party intervened in February 2006 and in July 2006 the parties entered into a consent decree. The decree was valid for two years and required Defendant to pay the charging party $50,000. Defendant was enjoined from discriminating in violation of Title VII and required to post a notice of non-discrimination, revise its anti-discrimination policy, establish a complaint procedure for violations of its anti-discrimination policy, provide annual Title VII training to its employees, and report regularly to the EEOC about its compliance with the decree.
