In September 2004, the Seattle District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. However, it appears from the consent decree that the complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against the two charging parties on the basis of national origin, Alaska Native, and ethnicity, Hispanic, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by failing to promote them because of their respective race or national origin. The charging parties intervened in the suit in March 2005. After some discovery, the parties settled in January 2006 through a consent decree.

The two-year decree, containing non-discrimination and non-retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: provide the charging parties with neutral employment references, report to the EEOC annually, post a notice of the decree, and pay $70,000 to be distributed among five individuals.
