$ 15.00

The facts are as follows; female correctional officers who were employed by the Milwaukee County Juvenile Detention Center filed a Title VII action against the county. In this complaint they stated that the detention center discriminated against them due to their gender. The correctional center started a new policy that required the facility to be staffed at all times by at least one officer of the same gender as the detainees housed in that unit in order to prevent the likelihood of sexual abuse of the juveniles. There were more male units than female units at the center, which resulted in the reducing of the shifts that females could work. The correctional center defended its policy by stating it had a bona fide occupational qualification.
