CU EEOC settle discrimination suit
PHOENIX (12/19/07)--A Phoenix-based credit union will pay $250,000 plus remedial relief to settle a discrimination lawsuit, announced the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The lawsuit was filed by EEOC against Sun West FCU on behalf of two female managers who were subjected to sexual and gender harassment by a former manager, said EEOC (Arizona Daily Star, Phoenix Business Journal and East Valley Tribune Dec. 17). The settlement by consent decree also requires the $256 million asset credit union to provide training and other relief to educate employees about sexual harassment, retaliation and their rights under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. EEOC regional attorney Mary Jo O'Neill, who oversaw the case, told Phoenix Business Journal that employers have a responsibility to take appropriate corrective and preventive action the first time they learn of discriminatory conduct in their workplace.
