Dolgencorp LLC Agrees to Pay $27,500 to Settle Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

Dolgencorp LLC agreed to pay $27,500 and provide other relief to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC charged that the company allowed a store manager to sexually harass female employees and then failed to take the proper remedial action against the manager. According to the EEOC's suit, the store manager in the company's Bull Shoals store began sexually harassing female employees shortly after his transfer to that store. The EEOC alleged the harassment included comments and requests for sexual favors. Although at least one employee called the corporate hotline and also complained to an assistant manager about the harassment, the company failed to take action to stop the manager's conduct. The EEOC filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas, Harrison Division, after first attempting to reach a voluntary settlement through its conciliation process. Besides the monetary relief, the 18-month consent decree agreed upon by the parties and approved by the court requires the company provide sexual harassment and retaliation training for store managers and assistant managers. The company must report complaints of sexual harassment received within that district to the EEOC and require Bull Shoals' assistant managers to report any complaints of sexual harassment to members of upper management.

Dolgencorp, LLC Gets Favorable Ruling in Fair Labor Standards Lawsuit

Dollar General Corp. announced that the court has granted its motion to decertify the Fair Labor Standards Act collective action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Alabama. The case, styled Cynthia Richter, et al. v. Dolgencorp, LLC, alleges that the company misclassified its store managers as exempt from overtime wages under the FLSA. In decertifying the class, the Court found that the about 2,875 remaining current and former store managers who joined the case are not sufficiently similarly situated to one another for the case to proceed collectively. Absent a successful challenge by plaintiffs to this ruling, the plaintiff and those who chose to join the lawsuit now may choose to proceed individually with their claims. The company does not know whether the plaintiffs plans to challenge the ruling, but that it plans to continue to defend its position in this case and in any individual cases that proceed.
