EEOC v. Jefferson Smurfit Corp. (U.S.)

No. 04 C 5996 (N.D. Ill. February 7, 2005)

In this Title VII suit, the Chicago District Office alleged that a white supervisor at the Hanover Park, Illinois facility of defendant, a major container manufacturer, subjected African-American employees under his supervision (including a machine operator, a stacker operator, and two roll stock technicians) to racial harassment. The conduct consisted of hostile and offensive racial remarks and oppressive and intimidating supervision of black employees. The African-American employees complained about the supervisor's conduct from at least December 2000 until defendant finally terminated the harasser in June 30, 2003. Under the 2-year consent decree resolving the case, four individuals will receive a total of $120,000 in monetary relief. Defendant is enjoined from discriminating against employees at its Hanover Park, Illinois facility because of race and is prohibited from engaging in retaliation under Title VII.
