EEOC v. Carrols Corp.

United States District Court for the Northern District of New York

Consent Decree (2013)

Facts

Carrols Corporation (defendant) was a major Burger King franchisee, operating over 500 restaurants in the United States. A Carrols employee filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) (plaintiff) alleging that female employees of Carrols were subjected to a culture of sexual harassment and that employees who complained were retaliated against. The EEOC investigated Carrols and found that Carrols had tolerated an environment of sexual harassment, engaging in a pattern of discrimination based on sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Carrols and the EEOC moved to settle the case, proposing a consent decree that would require Carrols to pay $2.5 million in monetary relief, provide training to all its employees about preventing sexual harassment in the workplace, implement antidiscrimination policies, conduct audits of human-resources practices, and provide a hotline for victims of sexual harassment.
