In November 2001, the Dallas District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against I-Sector Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas alleging that the defendant violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by subjecting the two charging parties, female employees, to a sexually hostile work environment, resulting in their constructive discharge. The charging parties intervened in the suit in March 2002. In November 2002, the EEOC filed a motion for partial summary judgment, and the defendant filed a motion for complete summary judgment. In January 2003, the EEOC's motion was granted in part and denied in part while the defendant's motion was denied. The parties settled in March 2003 through a consent decree, voluntarily dismissing the case.

The three-year decree, containing non-discrimination and non-retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: post and distribute a notice of the decree, report to the EEOC at specified intervals, conduct written evaluations of its managers and salaried associates, provide Title VII training for all its employees, provide the charging parties with neutral employment references, expunge the charging parties' personnel files from all references to the charges of discrimination, and pay $175,000 to be distributed between the two charging parties.
