Outback Steakhouse pays $19 million to settle EEOC sexual discrimination lawsuit

OSI Restaurant Partners LLC, which operates the Outback Steakhouse chain, agreed to pay $19 million to settle a class-action sex discrimination lawsuit that charged the company with discriminating against thousands of women at hundreds of its Outback Steakhouse restaurants in the U.S.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the lawsuit against the restaurant company in 2006 for allegedly denying female employees equal opportunities for advancement.

The lawsuit said the company made it difficult for female employees to be promoted to the higher-level profit-sharing management positions in the restaurants.  Female employees were also allegedly denied favorable job assignments.
