JACKSON, Miss. (AP) _ A Jackson strip club will pay $50,000 to settle a lawsuit alleging that it discriminated against black dancers.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the lawsuit in 2011 against Danny’s Cabaret, which bills itself as the largest adult entertainment club in Mississippi and the oldest such chain in the state.
U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III signed the consent decree on June 28. The EEOC announced the settlement in a news release Monday.
The lawsuit alleged Danny’s retaliated against four black women after one of them filed a complaint with the EEOC in 2011, by reducing their work hours and subjecting them to fines.
Under the decree, Danny’s will implement new policies and practices designed to prevent racial discrimination and retaliation and conduct supervisor and employee training
