EEOC v. Consolidated Freightways Corp.

No. 4:02-CV-00519 (W.D. Mo. January 21, 2005)

The St. Louis District Office filed this Title VII lawsuit alleging that Consolidated Freightways, formerly one of the largest freight carriers in North America, subjected black employees at its Kansas City, Missouri facility to a hostile work environment because of their race. The affected employees were a loading dock supervisor and 11 dockworkers. The harassment included the presence of nooses and racist graffiti in the workplace, physical assaults of black workers by white coworkers, threats of violence toward black workers, vandalism of black employees' property, and disparate discipline of black employees. Defendant failed to investigate reported incidents of harassment and took no meaningful remedial action. Defendant filed for bankruptcy and is now in the process of liquidation. The parties resolved the case through a consent decree providing a total of $2,750,000 in monetary relief to the 12 aggrieved individual in amounts ranging from $200,000 to $400,000. The claims will be treated as Class 4 unsecured claims in defendant's bankruptcy proceeding, and based on information from the bankruptcy trustee, the District Office expects to receive 13% to 20% of the face value of the claims.
