This Notice is being posted pursuant to a federal court order in the matter of EEOC v. Sherwood Food Distributors, LLC, Civil Action No. 1:16-cv-02386.  In that lawsuit, EEOC alleged that Sherwood Food Distributors, LLC (“Sherwood”) discriminated against female applicants in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”) by intentionally denying positions to a class of female applicants when, since at least January 1, 2009, it failed to hire women for warehouse positions in its warehouses located in Cleveland, Ohio, and in Detroit, Michigan.

To resolve the case, Sherwood and the EEOC have entered into a Consent Decree which provides, among other things, the following relief.

  1. Sherwood will pay monetary relief to a class of female non-hires identified by the EEOC and will provide employment opportunities to females identified by the agency. The company is prohibited by federal court order and federal law from discriminating against any applicant because of her sex, including but not limited to, failing to recruit or hire her because of her sex.
  2. Sherwood is enjoined and prohibited from retaliating against any person because that person engages in any protected activity under Title VII, including but not limited to complaining about or reporting alleged discrimination or retaliation, participating in any internal investigation of such matters, or opposing any conduct made unlawful by Title VII.
  3. Sherwood will provide mandatory training regarding prohibiting employment discrimination and retaliation to all current and future managers, supervisors, and employees.
  4. Sherwood is required to make, keep, and preserve all applications, application materials, and any other materials that reflect information provided to Sherwood regarding job applicants. The company also is required to make and keep applicant flow logs.
  5. Sherwood will adopt a non-discrimination policy and distribute the policy to all employees, including managers.
  6. Sherwood will establish a toll-free number and a secure e-mail address where any Sherwood applicant or employee may report complaints of discrimination.
  7. The EEOC will monitor Sherwood’s compliance with the terms of the Consent Decree.

The EEOC enforces the federal laws against discrimination in employment on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information. If you believe you have been discriminated against, or retaliated against for opposing or reporting discrimination, you have the right under federal law to contact the EEOC and report that discrimination or retaliation.  EEOC can be reached at (800) 669-4000 or, for the hearing impaired, at (800) 669-6820(TTY) or at or (844)-234-5122 (ASL Video Phone); or via e-mail at info@eeoc.gov. The EEOC is a federal law enforcement agency and charges no fees to receive and investigate complaints. Additional information about EEOC is available at www.eeoc.gov, including how to file a charge online.


Any questions about this Notice or compliance with its terms may be directed to Melanie M. Peterson, Senior Trial Attorney at 801 Market Street, Suite 1300, Philadelphia, PA 19107 or by e-mail at melanie.peterson@eeoc.gov or by telephone at (267) 589-9759.
