The EEOC's Miami district office sued Morgan Tire & Auto, Inc., a Florida corporation d/b/a Olson Tire Company, on June 14, 2002 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. The EEOC's complaint alleged that Morgan violated Title VII when it discriminated against the intervenor employee, who intervened in October 2002, based on sex (male) when it created a hostile work environment resulting in his constructive discharge. The parties entered into a consent decree on August 27, 2003, which stipulated that Morgan would pay the intervenor $7,500 in damages, implement Title VII training for managers, post a notice of compliance with Title VII, amend and distribute a copy of the company's EEO policy, and report complaints of discrimination to the EEOC semiannually.
