In August 2006, the Baltimore (along with the Philadelphia) office of the EEOC brought this Title VII suit against B & K Rentals and Sales Company in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against the claimant by terminating her because of her pregnancy. The case settled by entry of a consent decree in April 2007. The five year consent decree required the defendant to refrain from discrimination, provide training for its managerial employees, review and renew its EEO policy, post notice, give annual reports to the EEOC, and allow the EEOC to monitor its compliance with the decree. The terms of the agreement were to run for 5 years. The docket sheet does not show any further enforcement took place; the case was presumably closed in 2012.
