The Denver Office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, against Mini Mart, Inc. d/b/a Loaf'N Jug, a national convenience store chain that is part of the Kroger Company. The complaint, filed in September 2005, alleged sex discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; specifically that Defendant had subjected the charging parties to sexual harassment and then discharged them in retaliation for complaining about the harassment.

The charging parties intervened in December 2005, and in May 2006 the parties entered into a consent decree. The decree was valid for three years and required Defendant to pay a total of $225,000 ($100,000 to each of the charging parties and $25,000 to another female employee). Defendant was enjoined from discrimination or retaliation in violation of Title VII and required to provide Title VII training to its employees, post and distribute a notice of non-discrimination at its facility, and report to the EEOC semi-annually about any sexual harassment complaints.
