(Health care system paid female developer less than two male co-workers). The EEOC sued Covenant Medical Center alleging that it paid a female employee less than two male employees who performed substantially the same work as she did. Following a reorganization, the company placed a female employee and a male coworker into business intelligence developer positions, and less than a year later hired a man into the same position, both males at higher rates. However, the female employees extensive experience and the mathematical formula the company relied on should have resulted in a higher hourly rate than she received, and the company had refused to negotiate her pay rate. The case was resolved through a two-year consent decree providing the female employee $104,707 in monetary relief and raising her pay to $40.54 an hour.
