Chrapliwy v. Uniroyal, Inc., 670 F.2d 760 (7th Cir. 1982), cert. denied, 461 U.S. 956 (1983), was litigation involving allegedly discriminatory practices under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Uniroyal allegedly maintained "a segregated hiring and seniority system at its Mishawaka, Indiana plant where women were heavily employed in the footwear production division, while other lines predominantly employed male employees."
Alta Chrapliwy and other female workers filed charges against the company in a class action suit that was eventually concluded in their favor after years of litigation.
