The Miami District Office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, against Atlantis Golf Club, Inc. The complaint, filed in December 1999, alleged sex discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; specifically that Defendant subjected charging party to sexual harassment and then terminated her in retaliation for complaining to management about the harassment.

In May 2000 the charging party intervened and in August 2001 the parties entered into a consent decree. The decree was valid for 18 months and required Defendant to pay the charging party $10,000 in back pay. Defendant was enjoined from discrimination or retaliating in violation of Title VII and was required to post and distribute a notice of non-discrimination at its facility, provide Title VII training to its employees, and report regularly to the EEOC about its compliance with the decree.
