The EEOC's St. Louis district office sued Hiten Hospitality, d/b/a Family Motor Inn on August 21, 2003 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII when it discriminated based on sex (female) by creating a hostile work environment of sexual harassment against the intervenors, who intervened in September 2003, and retaliated by chastising complaining employees into constructive discharge or decreasing their work hours. The parties entered into a consent decree on March 18, 2004, which stipulated that the defendant would pay the intervenors $180,000 in damages, post a notice of compliance with Title VII, provide Title VII training to its employees, distribute a non-discrimination policy, report compliance with the consent decree, and allow the EEOC access to the defendant's records and employees to ensure compliance with the consent decree.
