A white woman who once worked for the Texas Historical Commission has filed a lawsuit claiming the commission discriminated against her on the basis of race, gender, age and in retaliation for making a complaint.
Ramona G. Hutchinson, who worked at the commission’s Castroville facility, claims that she was subjected to harassment and a hostile work environment.
She also claims she complained to her supervisor about not receiving the same training as other workers and about alleged violations of Texas health, safety, employment and finance laws.
According to Hutchinson, she made an appointment with the commission’s HR office. After submitting her complaints, Hutchinson alleges that HR forwarded the documents to her immediate supervisor, who disciplined her.
According to Hutchinson’s lawsuit, she was later unlawfully discharged due to false complaints made by co-workers.
