Lawry’s Restaurants recently agreed to settle a gender discrimination class action alleging that the chain hired only women for its food server positions. The EEOC filed the suit after Lawry’s Las Vegas restaurant refused to accept a male busboy’s application for an opening as a food server.

The Beverly Hills-based company will pay more than $1 million, including $500,000 to a class of several hundred men.

In addition, Lawry’s will pay $300,000 to advertise jobs and $225,000 to train employees in Title VII compliance. It also agreed to actively promote men into server positions.
