Gloria Pimental, a worker at Nordstrom stores in Wellington and Palm Beach Gardens, has filed an EEOC lawsuit alleging a manager harassed her and other Hispanic and black employees. Pimental claims she was fired when she complained.
Nordstrom has a very different version of events. The company says Pimental had a good relationship with her manager and that she did not complain until after her second. Following her complaint, Nordstrom invited employees to one-on-one meetings to air their concerns. But the company says no one took advantage of its offer. Nordstrom says Pimental resigned voluntarily, and that the company offered to reinstate her at a different store with a different manager.
“We take these allegations very seriously,” says Nordstrom spokeswoman Brooke White. If Nordstrom can back up its claims with good documentation, it might have a strong defense.
