Truck driver files gender discrimination lawsuit against company

A recent lawsuit has been filed by a female truck driver and claims that she is the victim of gender discrimination in the workplace after she was allegedly fired for complaining about her supervisor.

The lawsuit states that the woman’s supervisor showed her pornographic videos while she and him were traveling in a semi-truck together from Utah to Texas. The two were on their way back to Texas from a training seminar in Utah when he showed her the video while they were pulled over on the side of the road.

The woman then notified headquarters of the company, Central Refrigerated Service Inc., about the incident. The woman was then left at the Texas rest stop and picked up by a female employee in order to be taken home.

When she arrived back to her office, she was told that she was fired. The lawsuit was filed on Oct. 24 in the Eastern District of Texas and claims that the company discriminated against her by creating a sexually hostile environment and then terminating her when she spoke up about it.

Katy ISD says school did not create hostile work environment

Officials with the Katy Independent School District have backed the leaders at Golbow Elementary and denied claims that they created a hostile work environment and harassed employees.

The officials with the school district have announced that the claims made lack any merit. Six people, including teachers and former educators, asked the school board members to investigate claims that school officials were involved in coercing resignations, alienating parents and ignoring complaints.

The school board was told that the administration is creating a “unhealthy and psychologically damaging work and learning environment.”
