The Indianapolis Fire Department has agreed to pay $350,000 to settle a sexual discrimination suit filed by a female captain. The captain claimed she was harassed, unjustly disciplined and not considered for promotion. She also claimed the department retaliated against her for filing her complaint.
In addition to the money, the fire department also must initiate gender sensitivity training as part of the settlement.
