HOUSTON - Alleging Southern Implants Inc. fired her because she complained about sexual harassment, Spring resident Wanda Hall has filed a lawsuit.
In court papers filed March 19 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas, Hall explains that the purported termination was a result of her reporting a manager's misconduct.
The defendant, doing business as Keystone Dental, hired her as a regional sales manager in August 2010.
She recalls an instance in which the respondent's manager of customer service reportedly showed her an image of a man's private part and asked her about her sexual experience and interests, adding she subsequently expressed her disapproval.
The same manager supposedly went into the complainant's room after a surgery implant meeting in July 2011 and exposed himself to her, earning her disgust, the original petition further asserts.
Hall says she reported the manager to no avail as he "intentionally retaliated against [her]" and the company "permitted this retaliation to exist."
Such acts and behavior "resulted in angry surgeons, lost sales and damage to the plaintiff's reputation," the suit says.
Keystone Dental dismissed Hall on Aug. 31, 2012.
A jury trial is requested.
Attorney Marcus L. Stevenson of The Stevenson Law Firm PC in Pearland is representing the plaintiff.
Case No. 4:13-CV-769
