Pittsburgh’s Guardian Angel Ambulance Service faces an EEOC lawsuit alleging it breached a previous settlement agreement with a now-deceased former employee.
The employee had quit the company and sued, alleging race and sex discrimination. The company voluntarily entered into a settlement agreement under which it would pay $5,000 to the former employee’s two children. The EEOC alleges the company paid only $800.
Now it’s suing to collect the other $4,200, plus interest, on behalf of the children. The suit also seeks a court order directing Guardian Angel to reimburse the EEOC for filing fees and to report all future settlement payments directly to the EEOC.
Note: Signing a settlement agreement isn’t enough. Employers such as Guardian Angel must fulfill their obligations under the agreements they sign—or face judgment day in court.
