A former employee of St. Petersburg-based Home Shopping Network (HSN) has filed suit against the company, alleging race discrimination. Armanda Vernon claims HSN passed her over repeatedly for promotions because she is black, even after she convinced company President Mindy Grossman to intervene.
The lawsuit alleges a pattern of discrimination, noting that only about a dozen of the company’s 3,500 employees are black.
