HOUSTON — A black Houston man is suing a commercial debt collection firm, alleging employment discrimination and retaliation.
Damian Robinson filed a complaint Jan. 31 in Harris County District Court against Greenberg, Grant & Richards Inc. alleging violation of the Texas Labor Code.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 9, 2016, Robinson was terminated from his employment, leading to loss of income, humiliation, worry and embarrassment.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant subjected him to adverse employment actions in connection with compensation, privileges and other terms and conditions of employment, made disparaging remarks about people of color, retaliated against him and terminated his employment for filing a charge with the EEOC.
Robinson seeks trial by jury, monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million and all other just relief. He is represented by attorneys Daryl J. Sinkule and Todd Slobin of Shellist Lazarz Slobin LLP in Houston.
