A former faculty member and a current faculty member at a noted university in another state have claimed that they were harassed and discriminated against due to their race. The pair, a married couple who are Asian American, have thus decided to sue the university together. When workers in the state of Texas face race discrimination or harassment on the job, it is within their rights to seek to hold their employers accountable for improper conduct.
The husband previously taught in the American Culture and History Departments at the university. The wife currently lectures in the American Culture and Women's Studies Departments. They started teaching at the school in the year 2000, at which time they were already married. According to the lawsuit, the couple faced discrimination as a result of their marriage, in addition to suffering disparate treatment for racial reasons.
