Arizona ex rel. Horne v. The Geo Group, Inc. , 13-16081

In an employment action brought by the EEOC and the Arizona Civil Rights Division against defendant Geo Group for violating the employment rights of its female employees, the district court's grant of summary judgment to defendant is vacated where: 1) plaintiffs sufficiently conciliated their class claims against defendant in light of Mach Mining, LLC v. EEOC, 135 S.Ct. 1645 (2015); 2) plaintiffs can maintain their claims on behalf of aggrieved employees provided that the employee has alleged at least one act of misconduct that occurred within 300 days prior to the date the first aggrieved employee filed her charge against defendant; and 3) an aggrieved employee is not required to file a new charge of discrimination with the EEOC if her claim is already encompassed within the Reasonable Cause Determination or is like or reasonably related to the initial charge.
