In March 1997, the Chicago office of the EEOC brought this suit against Admiral Maintenance Service, L.P. et al., in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. After the court denied the defendant's motion to dismiss and in the alternative for summary judgment and granted in part and denied in part the plaintiff's cross motion for partial summary judgment, the case settled by entry of a consent decree in April 1998.

While we do not have the complaint, it seems from the consent decree that the allegations were made under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The specific allegations seems to be that Admiral engaged in a pattern and practice of unlawful employment discrimination on the basis of race by refusing to hire African Americans.

The consent decree requires Admiral to pay $90,000 in equal shares to the 163 class members, offer them employment if no good cause exists not to, provide training for all managers, supervisors and hiring personnel, keep detailed records of the applications they receive as well as the name and race of people receiving assignments from Admiral, post a non-discrimination notice, and issue regular reports to the EEOC showing compliance with the consent decree.
