In April 1999, the Miami District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Denny's, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida alleging that the defendant subjected the charging party and similarly situated female employees to sexual harassment in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. After some scheduling orders, the parties participated in mediation in March 2000. They reached a settlement a few months later in June.

The two-year settlement agreement, containing non-discrimination and non-retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: provide Title VII training for all its employees, post a notice of employee rights, retain relevant records, report to the EEOC every six months, and pay $60,350 to the charging party.
