In March 2004, the EEOC's Philadelphia office filed this suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware against Ryder Integrated Logistics, a subsidiary of Ryder Truck Rentals, Inc., and Ryder System, Inc., alleging violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964. Specifically, the EEOC alleged that the defendant, a provider of logistic, warehousing and transportation services worldwide, had created a hostile work environment for six female complainants when a male supervisor made directed offensive sexual comments, sexual advances and solicitations at them. The complainants filed a motion to intervene in April 2004, but the parties proposed a consent decree, in November 2004, that ultimately left the motion to intervene unresolved. The only information available for this summary was the docket, but it is known that the consent decree, at the very least, ordered the defendant to pay $510,000 to the six complainants.
