The San Francisco District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Paragary's Management Group (d/b/a Paragary's Bar and Oven; Blue Clue; Cafe Bernardo; Centro Cocina; Esquire Grill; KBar; Monkey Bar; and Spataro), Paramoor, Inc. (d/b/a Paragary's Management Group; Paragary's Bar and Oven; Blue Clue; Cafe Bernardo; Centro Cocina; Esquire Grill; KBar; Monkey Bar; and Spataro), PDK Partnership and PK Partnership in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California in September 2005. The complaint alleged sex and national origin discrimination in violation of the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Female employees were allegedly subjected to sexual harassment, creating a hostile work environment. Mexican females were alleged to have been subjected to different terms and conditions of employment (such as denial of breaks and requested leave) because of their sex and national origin. No substantive activities have occurred since the defendant answered in December 2005. The case is still ongoing in the district court as of 4/22/2008.
