EEOC Continues to Take Aggressive Litigation Position, Seeks Punitive Damages

The EEOC announced today that it plans to aggressively pursue a claim for punitive damages against New Prime, Inc., a large trucking firm, for violating Title VII by maintaining a policy providing female trainers for female drivers/applicants, now that a federal court has agreed that the employer's policy was unlawful.  The EEOC's press release states that the employer established the policy in an effort to prevent sexual harassment, following a prior harassment claim involving a female driver trainee.
