Region 8 nursing home ordered to pay after EEOC investigation

OSCEOLA, AR (KAIT) - A federal judge has ordered an Osceola nursing home accused of sex discrimination to pay up.

The U.S. District Judge ordered Osceola Nursing Home, LLP, the former owner of the nursing home facility, to pay $2,500 dollars to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

"Osceola Nursing LLP represented to us on numerous occasions that it would produce the information and failed to do so," said EEOC Memphis District Director Katharine W. Kores.  "The EEOC issued a subpoena so that we could obtain the information we need to complete our investigation of the discrimination charges.  When that failed, we sought relief from the court, as provided by federal law."

Apparently company officials failed to turn over files and documents that had been subpoenaed.

EEOC Regional Attorney Faye A. Williams in Memphis said, "We will continue to use the subpoena enforcement authority afforded to EEOC by Title VII, when necessary, to complete our investigations of alleged unlawful conduct in workplaces." 

The EEOC is investigating charges of sex discrimination and retaliation that has been filed by four employees.
