The EEOC district office of Seattle, Washington brought this action against JC Penney in September 2000, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho. The complaint alleges sex discrimination and retaliation based on complaints of sex discrimination that resulted in violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The charging parties intervened as plaintiffs. Two weeks prior to trial, the parties decided to settle the suit.

In June 2002, a consent decree was entered which stated that the defendant (1) agreed to provide an environment free of sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation; (2) agreed to pay all aggrieved employees undisclosed amounts in satisfaction of all claims related to this suit; (3) must train all employees concerning employment discrimination law; (4) retain all records regarding the aforementioned training; (5) and allow the EEOC to inspect all training records for a 2-year period.
