In September 2004, the Charlotte District Office of the EEOC (with participation from the Raleigh Area Office), brought this suit against Triad Clinical Laboratory, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina alleging discrimination and retaliation in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the defendant terminated the charging party, a female employee, because of: her association with an individual who had filed a charge of discrimination against the defendant, her participation in the EEOC's investigation of the charge, and her complaints of sexual harassment. After some scheduling orders and discovery, the parties reached a tentative settlement in mid October 2005 and entered into a final settlement agreement about two weeks later.

The two-year decree prohibited the defendant from discriminating or retaliating. In addition, the defendant agreed to pay the charging party $10,300. In the event the defendant resumes business operations, the decree also required the defendant to: adopt and distribute an anti-discrimination policy, report to the EEOC at specified intervals, and provide Title VII training for all its employees.
