The EEOC's Miami district office sued Aeromar Airlines, Inc. on January 30, 1998 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act when it discriminated based on age by creating a hostile work environment for the complainant, retaliated by filing two state lawsuits when the complainant pursued an EEOC complaint, and discharged the complainant because of her age. The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment in March 1999, which was never resolved. The parties entered into a settlement agreement on April 20, 1999, which stipulated that the defendant would pay the complainant $22,000 in damages, provide a neutral reference letter, expunge the complainant's employment record, post a notice of compliance with the ADEA, post the company's EEO policy, provide EEO training to its employees, and allow the EEOC to enter the defendant's premises to ensure compliance with the consent decree.
