Austin firm slapped with discrimination lawsuit
A lawsuit was recently filed by a woman against her former employer in Austin on the suspicion that the firm discriminated against her, leading to her termination, a January 9 article of SE Texas Record stated.
According to reports, the American Eagle Protective Services Corporation was accused of violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prevents employers from discriminating against their employees based on their color, sex, religion, race, or national origin. A former security agent for the company, identified as Christine Reid, a Jamaican-American, was terminated from her job. The company allegedly discriminated against Reid after she underwent a major surgical procedure. Documents revealed that Reid is seeking to recover the total financial loss she suffered after being terminated, including all the fees related to the court proceedings.
