Female Manager Sues K-Designers for Sexual Harassment and Retaliation
January 8, 2010
Our Southern California Labor and Employment Lawyers have been following the recent lawsuit filed against K-Designers of Rancho Cordova, California, in which a former female sales manager is accusing the company of sexual discrimination and retaliation.
According to the lawsuit, Corri Buckley, a former sales manager within the exterior home remodeling company, worked in an employment environment that was dominated by men, and from mid 2006 to mid 2007, she was reportedly subjected to sexual discrimination and subsequent retaliation for filing a complaint with her branch manager.
Buckley accused the K-Designers' management of discriminating against her by trying to isolate her from other workers, denying her training along with other staff, placing her on disability leave when she was perfectly able to do work, and in the end terminating her employment.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in the workplace based on sex, color, race, religion, and national origin. Any employee who complains against such unlawful offenses is also protected from retaliation within the company.
K-Designers employs approximately 900 people and has eleven branches located in western and mid-western states. The lawsuit was filed in Omaha, in a U.S. District Court by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
