The Charlotte office of the EEOC brought this suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina against EZ Money, Inc., EZ Check Cashing of Charlotte, Inc., Greenville International, Inc., and Gulfshore Management, Inc., in September 2006. The complaint alleged discrimination against a female employee in violation of Title VII. More specifically, the complaint alleged the complainant was discharged because of her sex and because she became pregnant. After two status conferences, the parties entered a consent decree in August 2007.

The consent decree included non-discrimination and non-retaliation clauses, required the defendants to develop an anti-discrimination policy and required the defendants to post and distribute copies of the policy. The defendants also agreed to provide EEO training to all of their managers, supervisors and employees on an annual basis. The decree had a term of three years. In the event of non-compliance, the decree called for notification and a chance to remedy and court enforcement. The defendant also agreed to provide the claimant with a neutral reference letter and agreed to either return to the claimant her entire personnel file, or in the alternative, eliminate from her employment record all references to her termination and the suit. The defendant also agreed to pay the claimant $20,000.
