Jackson, MS- from ClarionLedger.com – A Jackson strip club will pay $50,000 to settle a lawsuit alleging that it discriminated against black dancers.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the lawsuit in 2011 against Danny’s Cabaret, which bills itself as the largest adult entertainment club in Mississippi and the oldest such chain in the state.
U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III signed the consent decree on June 28. The EEOC announced the settlement in a news release Monday.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Sherida Edwards and three unnamed women the EEOC said faced similar discrimination. They are considered class members to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleged Danny’s retaliated against the four women after one of them filed a complaint with the EEOC in April 2011, allegedly by reducing their work hours and subjecting them to fines.
Danny’s pressured Edwards to withdraw her EEOC complaint, cut her hours and forced her to compete for dancing slots, the lawsuit said. The company also maintained schedules only for black women and forced one of them to compete with Edwards for a dancing slot on the “Black shift,” the lawsuit said.
The lawsuit said the working conditions for Edwards became so intolerable that she was “constructively discharged” — in effect, forced to quit — on July 4, 2011.
Under the court decree, Danny’s will implement new policies and practices designed to prevent racial discrimination and retaliation. It also will conduct supervisor and employee training on antidiscrimination and retaliation laws and establish a confidential process for people to submit discrimination and retaliation complaints.
The process will include employer protections of non-retaliation and requirements for a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation. EEOC officials said Danny’s will also post notices at the work site, including EEOC on new allegations of race discrimination and retaliation during the two-year period.
