A former manager at Capital Title of Texas has filed suit in federal court in Houston, claiming the company fired her for refusing to color her gray hair. Sandra Rawline, who is 52 and has shoulder-length gray hair, claims her boss told her to dye her hair because the office was moving from Katy to the Galleria area. According to the suit, the company wanted a more upscale image for its new location.
Rawline, who has been gray since her early 20s, turned down her boss’s request on a Thursday. By the following Tuesday, she had been fired, eventually to be replaced by a woman 10 years younger.
In a statement, Capital Title of Texas said that it fired Rawline because one of its customers no longer wanted to do business with her.
