A former employee of Versace recently sued the company, alleging unfair business practices. Specifically, the luxury fashion company is accused of engaging in race discrimination. If a person in Texas or elsewhere experiences discrimination on the job based on his or her race, he or she has the right to seek justice in civil court.
A woman in a recent out-of-state case claimed that she was harassed on the job due to being a woman and then was retaliated against. After deliberating for 15 hours during a three-day period, a civil jury agreed with her, and she was recently awarded compensatory damages totaling more than $87,000. When somebody in Texas experiences workplace gender discrimination, it is within his or her rights to pursue full accountability from his or her employer.
A police officer in a different state recently claimed that she was harassed sexually on the job. She has therefore filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the department. When an individual in Texas experiences this type of harassment in the workplace, it is within his or her rights to take legal action.
A sheriff's deputy filed a whistleblower lawsuit against a county in another state, and earlier this year, his department had to reinstate him following a dispute about wrongful termination. However, the deputy recently claimed that he has continued to face retaliation after returning to the job, so he has decided to sue the county again. Employer retaliation is illegal in Texas and elsewhere, and thus, it is grounds for litigation.
Several African-Americans recently filed a lawsuit in federal court against a job placement agency, alleging discrimination on the basis of race.
