A female HR director delivered St. Cloud-based Royal Tire a kick when she sued the company for an Equal Pay Act violation.

She complained that the company paid her $35,000 less than the man who previously held the position, and $19,000 below the company’s published pay band for the position.

When the company didn’t address her complaints, she filed a complaint with the EEOC, which sued on her behalf. Faced with explaining her low pay to a jury, Royal agreed to settle the matter by paying her $182,500 in back pay and agreeing to three-year consent decree under which it must evaluate all employee pay and give raises to remedy pay inequities.
