The Los Angeles District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Leo Palace Resort in the U.S. District Court for the District of Guam in September 2006. The complaint alleged sex discrimination and retaliation for complaining in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The complaint alleged that three complainants were subjected to a hostile work environment based on their sex; that two of the complainants were retaliated against for complaining about the sexual harassment; and that all three complainants were constructively discharged. The complainants intervened in the EEOC's suit and the defendant moved to dismiss their tort claims and moved for summary judgment. The summary judgment motion was denied and the motion to dismiss was denied as premature. The parties entered into a consent decree in March 2008, which required the defendant to pay the complainants a total of $243,000. It also required the defendant to create an anti-discrimination policy; institute a complaint procedure; hire an outside consultant to ensure compliance with the decree; post and distribute a notice of equal opportunity employment rights; and conduct annual training for all employees.
