Topic: Prime Trucking Same Sex Training Discrimination $3 Million Dollar Lawsuit


Paul Taylor - Truckers Justice Center Plaintiff's Attorney

Jan Shelly - EEOC Senior Trial Attorney

New Prime, Inc. a trucking company that trains new drivers implemented a policy in 2003 after being sued for sexual harassment by a female driver trainee. The new policy instructed that female trainee's would only be trained by female trainer's though Prime could not provide enough female trainers for the demand. This caused female trainee's delays in training that far outweighed those of male trainee's.

A female trainee named Deanna Roberts Clouse sued Prime over the new training practice policy that limited women access to employment.

Join us as we discuss this case with the legal team that won this same-sex train discrimination case and the confusion over how a policy like this is not the solution to sex assaults and harassment in trucking.
