On March 30, 2001, the Denver office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit under Title VII against Colorado Central Station Casino, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. The EEOC claimed that the defendants had violated the rights of Hispanic members of the housekeeping staff by instituting an "English-only" policy for all workers and repeatedly harassing all Hispanic housekeeping staff who spoke Spanish.

On July 18, 2003, the parties reached a settlement, and three days later, they filed a settlement agreement with the district court. Under the terms of the agreement, the defendants agreed to pay $1,201,000.00 to the 9 plaintiff-intervenors in this case, with an additional $315,000 to 24 additional claimants. Under the agreement, the defendants were forbidden to discriminate or retaliate against any of the complainants, and they were required to provide neutral reference letters for each of those employees. The defendants agreed to require all individuals who work in management to receive 15 hours of anti-discrimination training, including training on Title VII and other federal EEO laws. Defendants were required to report to the EEOC every 6 months regarding their compliance with the settlement agreement. Additionally Defendant agreed to maintain an internal complaint procedure, to post notice of EEO rights, and to allow for monitoring of their site.

We have only the docket and the settlement agreement in this case, therefore we have no further information on the complaint.
