Texas discrimination case involves state educational institution

Discrimination cases can and do happen across all industries, including at educational institutions. In fact, a recent discrimination case formally began in Texas, and the alleged discrimination occurred at a state college. There, the campus is being charged as being a discriminatory environment by a woman who was formerly employed by the college.

The woman's job when working at the educational institution was as a patrol person. As a policewoman, she was hired to protect the campus. However, she alleges that rather than being regarded as an asset to the college, she was discriminated against and treated poorly.

She alleges that as the only female in the five-member police department for the college, she was pushed aside as an outsider and called the departmental "Chihuahua," a racially-motivated comment stemming from her Hispanic heritage. According to her reports, the chief and sergeant at the college police department were pals; therefore, if she made complaints about one, the other would back him up. Eventually, she was fired from the department, which she purports was because she made it clear that she was uninterested in pursuing a sexual relationship with the sergeant.

If she is able to prove her discrimination charges in court, she may receive remuneration from the Texas college. Those monies would cover lost wages, psychiatric bills, attorney fees and punitive damages, as well as compensatory damages and fringe benefit reimbursement. She is also asking that she be reinstated as a police officer on the campus from which she believes she was wrongfully fired.
