The New York District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Preferred Labor LLC (doing business as Preferred People Staffing) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts in August 2006. The complaint alleged sex discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The defendant employment agency allegedly discriminated against female applicants on the basis of their sex; unlawfully classified jobs on the basis of sex; complied with requests for employees on the basis of sex; and retaliated against a female employee who complained about the discrimination. The case was referred to a magistrate judge for mediation, and it was ongoing in the district court as of 4/22/2008. In April, a status conference was scheduled for 7/14/2008.
