“Myrna Peltonen was a woman who felt she was just doing her job, and did not want to make a fuss,” Kamp said. “ But she felt that this was wrong and that she had to become involved. The EEOC will support such a woman as strongly as we can.”

By suing, the EEOC hopes to win back pay and force Izza to put in place an anti-retaliation policy that complies with federal law.

Peltonen did find a new job “some weeks after” being fired, Kamp said.

Smith came to a confidential settlement in his suit in January with Izza and Creative Staffing Solutions, Kamp said. Peltonen gave a deposition in that case, Kamp added.
