The Park School of Brooklandville, a private PK-12 school in Baltimore, Maryland will pay $41,000 to settle a federal Title VII sex discrimination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
According to the EEOC suit, the school had initially hired a man as its head softball coach in the Spring of 2014. The school renewed his contract until 2017 when, despite his satisfactory job performance, it informed him that it would not renew his contract because of its “preference for female leadership.”
As a result of the EEOC lawsuit, the Park School will implement a policy prohibiting gender discrimination and retaliation. In addition it will provide training on federal anti-discrimination laws and the company’s policies. The Park School will post a notice regarding the settlement and employee rights under Title VII and as agreed to report any future complaints of gender discrimination to the EEOC.
