Woman denied opportunities alleges workplace discrimination

All employees should be treated fairly regardless of any protected status characteristic. Sadly, in this day and age, workplace discrimination continues to plague employees across the country. However, aggrieved Texas workers often find hope by turning to the court system for assistance.

A 65-year-old woman who worked for Golden Pass LNG Terminal claims that she was the victim of age and race discrimination and a hostile work environment. The plaintiff, an African-American, began working for the company in 2008 as an experienced financial analyst. Five years later, she was placed under a new supervisor, and, from that point forward, her work environment took a turn for the worst.

According to her complaint, her supervisor was a younger white woman. From the moment the new supervisor took over, she claims that she was subjected to a difficult work environment. She claims that she was denied opportunities for growth in the company, as well as refused additional training. When raises were given, the plaintiff asserts that hers were significantly lower than those of her co-workers.

The woman filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission several months before she resigned from her position. She is accusing the company of workplace discrimination and subjecting her to a hostile work environment, which forced her to leave her position with the Texas company. Based upon evidence of the discrimination, she may be awarded the lost income, monetary damages and legal costs she is seeking by a civil court. In similar circumstances, a court may order affected employees to be reinstated into their former positions.
