Tameisha Wilson, of Penn Hills, has filed an EEOC lawsuit against Grand Rapids, MI-based Gainey Transportation, claiming she was subjected to sexual comments, threatening language and unwanted touching after she joined the company as a trainee in October 2006.
Wilson complained to her supervisors, but she says they did nothing.
Nothing, that is, until Oct. 16, 2006, when Wilson says she was fired and abandoned at a truck stop more than 100 miles from home without a cell phone, money or a credit card. Fortunately for Wilson, she found a ride back.
Having refused to settle with the EEOC, Gainey will have a chance to explain its actions to the court.
