sex discrimination

Michigan Dept. of Corrections

A federal judge will decide if a proposed settlement can resolve a sex discrimination lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections.

The lawsuit was brought by 28 female corrections officers who worked at the Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility. The suit claims a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII is a federal law that prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, and national origin.
