Dental supply company to pay $25K to settle retaliation lawsuit

Dental Health Products, a dental supply company based in New Franken, Wis., has agreed to pay $25,000 to settle a federal sex-based retaliation lawsuit from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. 

A female sales representative filed a complaint with the company's human resources department, claiming that she was being discriminated against by her manager because of her sex, according to a May 8 EEOC news release. 

Less than one day later, Dental Health Products allegedly fired the sales representative, which was an act of retaliation and a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the commission alleged. 

In addition to the settlement payment, Dental Health Products must adopt a written policy against discrimination in the workplace and provide training to all current employees on Title VII, the release said.
