In December 1998, the Houston District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Jumbobag Corp. in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas alleging sexual harassment and retaliation against female employees in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. The parties resolved the lawsuit that same day through a consent decree.

The two year and 300 day decree, containing a non-retaliation clause, required the defendant to: report on harassment and retaliation complaints and make other compliance reports, maintain records regarding complaints and their resolution, allow the EEOC access for monitoring, expunge the employment records of the complaining employees, adopt an anti-discrimination policy, post notice of employee rights, provide training for two years to all managers, supervisors, and employees, read a notice of employee rights allowed to all employees, and pay an undisclosed amount of money to the EEOC to be distributed among three complainants.
