The Greenville, South Carolina Office of the EEOC filed this action in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina. The Defendants were Homes America, Inc., Accent Mobile Homes, Inc., and Southern Showcase Housing, Inc., all businesses engaged in the manufacturing, distributing, and selling of mobile homes. The controversy involved the alleged harassment, retaliation against, and termination of two female employees based on their sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The lawsuit was filed in May 2003 and was resolved by consent decree in April 2004. Both parties filed for partial summary judgment, but the case settled prior to either motion being ruled on. The complainants, who did not intervene in the case, were awarded a total of $50,000 and a guarantee of neutral references. In addition, the company was required to provide training, post a Notice, and adopt a complaint procedure, and submit annual reports to the EEOC.
