In May 2002, the Baltimore office of the EEOC brought this Title VII suit against The Order People (f/k/a Corporate Express Callcenter Services) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against the claimant because of his religious belief (Jehovah's Witness). More specifically, the defendant failed to reasonably accommodate the claimant, which included not attending training for, or servicing certain potential customers of Playboy, one of the defendant's clients. The case settled, and the court dismissed the case in May 2002. The settlement agreement required the defendant to pay the claimant $10,000 in damages, refrain from discrimination, and expunge the claimant's record.
