The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced the settlement of a major sex discrimination lawsuit against CBS Broadcasting, Inc. for $8 million in financial compensation for approximately 200 female workers in various cities, along with wide- ranging injunctive relief to be monitored by EEOC over the duration of the four year Consent Decree. The suit charged CBS with subjecting a class of female technicians to a pattern and practice of discrimination in regard to salary, over time, promotions, and training; creating a hostile work environment that included sexual harassment; and retaliating against female employees for complaining about the discrimination.
