EEOC's Birmingham, AL and Washington, DC offices jointly filed this sex discrimination lawsuit against the defendant Jackson Paving and Construction, Inc. in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Alabama on 09/25/2000. EEOC alleged that two former female employees were subject to sexual harassment and retaliatory discharge. The individual complainants did not intervene or file a separate lawsuit.

The parties consented to the case being referred to Magistrate Judge Robert R. Armstrong Jr. for trial. However, the case was resolved by a proposed consent decree before any discovery was conducted. The district court entered a consent judgment on 09/28/2001.

Under the 1-year consent decree, the defendant agreed to pay the two complainants $9,000 and $1,000 respectively, and provide neutral references for them in the future. Additionally, the defendant was required to post EEO policies and complaint procedure, and provide training to all owners and supervisors.
