HOUSTON — A Houston woman is suing a private childcare facility, alleging race, age and religious discrimination.
Gwendolyn Muttilib filed a complaint March 8 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Bright Horizons Children’s Center LLC, doing business as JPMorgan Chase Back Up Child Care Center, alleging violation of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, as a result of the defendant's arbitrary and capricious acts, Muttilib, a black Muslim woman, has suffered loss of wages and benefits, humiliation and embarrassment, mental anguish and emotional distress after she was terminated in March 2013.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant subjected her to discriminatory compensation practices, hostile work environment, retaliation and termination for her continuous complaints of discriminatory practices.
Muttilib seeks trial by jury, compensatory damages, plus interest, costs of court and all other legal and equitable relief. She is represented by attorney Ike Okorafor of Okorafor Law Group in Houston.
