EEOC v. Jax Inns, Inc., d/b/a Spindrifter Hotel

No. 3:04-CV-978-J-16MMH (M.D. Fla. April 13, 2006)

The Miami District Office filed this Title VII race discrimination case alleging that defendant, owner of the Spindrifter Hotel and Conference Center in Orange Park, Florida, fired charging party (white) from her Director of Sales position for associating with blacks. Defendant bought the Spindrifter Hotel in June 2002, and in October 2002 rehired CP into the Director of Sales position she had held under the previous owners. Defendant's owners often complimented CP on the great job she was doing. In December 2002, CP stopped by the hotel after church to make sure everything was going well, although she was not scheduled to work. Her children, who are biracial, accompanied her. Defendant's majority owner asked if the children were hers, and appeared shocked and disappointed when she said they were. The following week the majority owner made stereotypical, pejorative comments about black people to CP. He then began interviewing candidates for CP's position. After hiring a new "Assistant General Manager" he fired CP without explanation on January 17, 2003. The new manager assumed CP's duties. Under the 3-year consent decree resolving this case, CP will receive $99,000 in monetary relief. The decree enjoins defendant from engaging in race discrimination and retaliation in violation of Title VII.
