A man who applied for work at the Denton State School is suing the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS), claiming gender bias. His claim: The school just won’t hire men for some positions.
The Denton State School provides services and support to disabled individuals and is operated by DADS.
Charley Larry claims he was a qualified applicant for open positions. However, he claims he wasn’t even considered for a job because the school has a discriminatory practice of hiring only women for certain positions—specifically those involving care of female residents.
In addition to seeking damages for civil rights violations, Larry’s lawsuit demands back pay, front pay, compensatory damages, interest, court costs and attorneys’ fees. He is also seeking an injunction that would prohibit further gender discrimination.
