In September 2005, the Detroit office of the EEOC brought this Title VII suit against Consolidated Chemical Corporation in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Michigan. The complaint alleged that the defendant subjected the claimants to sexual harassment because of their sex (female). The case settled by entry of a consent decree in November 2005.

The one year consent decree required the defendant to pay the claimant $125,000 in damages, review and revise its sexual harassment policy, rescind its training manual, post notice, and provide training for all owners, officers, directors, managers, and employees.
