In September 2006, the Los Angeles District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against the construction cement supplier Robertsons Ready Mix LLC in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California alleging discrimination on the basis of gender, female, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact claims involved are unknown. However, it appears from the consent decree that the defendant allegedly failed to hire female drivers for its cement mixers. Prior to the defendant making an appearance in court, the parties settled the lawsuit in April 2007 through a consent decree.

The three-year decree, containing an agreement not to discriminate or retaliate, required the defendant to: make compliance reports, keep records, hire an internal manager/EEO monitor, allow qualified claimants to reapply for the job position, utilize objective job descriptions and hiring criteria, post and distribute notice of employee rights, provide employee training, and pay $550,000 to be distributed among a class of individuals at the EEOC's sole discretion.
