IWPR/Wage Project Consent Decree Study

The Institute for Women’s Policy Research, in collaboration with The WAGE Project, Inc., examined consent decree remedies for sex and race discrimination in the workplace.

Consent decrees in employment discrimination cases typically mandate organizational remedies, such as sexual harassment training, new grievance procedures, supervisory training or performance management and reward schemes, as well as individual relief.

The research focused on the design and impact of organizational remedies on changing workplace conditions. Researchers collected and coded approximately 500 consent decrees that became effective between 2000 and 2008, from cases litigated and settled by the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, the Department of Justice and private law firms. Researchers also made in-depth studies of a small number of highly innovative consent decrees in order to better describe best practice for using consent decrees to improve working conditions through the eradication of discrimination based on race and sex from the workplace.
