Calloway v. Partners National Health Plans

United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit

986 F.2d 446 (1993)

Facts

In June 1987, Felicia Calloway (plaintiff), a Black woman, accepted an offer to work at Partners National Health Plans (Partners) (defendant) for an annual salary of $14,996. Calloway replaced a White woman who had been hired nine months earlier at an annual salary of $16,000. Ivory Steward was another Black woman working at Partners. In February 1988, Steward was fired from Partners. On February 19, 1988, Steward filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), alleging that Partners engaged in wage discrimination. In 1989, Steward filed suit against Partners in federal court, contending that Partners violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII). In November 1989, Calloway resigned from Partners. Although Calloway did not file a complaint with the EEOC, she filed a Title VII claim for wage discrimination in federal court. Calloway sought to bring her claim under Steward’s EEOC complaint. The district court held that Calloway was not permitted to proceed under Steward’s EEOC complaint because Calloway’s claim was time barred. Calloway appealed.
