The Kansas City District Office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri, against Packaging Dynamics, Inc. The complaint, filed in April 2001, alleged sex discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and in violation of the Equal Pay Act of 1963. Specifically, the complaint alleged that Defendant paid the charging party a wage that was less than the rates paid to its male employees who performed substantially equal work. In September of 2001, the parties jointly filed to dismiss the case. The docket does not make clear why the parties dismissed the case, but it is likely due to reaching a settlement.
