HOUSTON – A Houston woman alleges she was terminated from her position as a human resources representative for reporting sexual harassment and racial discrimination.

Tiffany K. Riley filed a complaint on Sept. 27 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Turtle & Hughes Inc. & Neil Feldman alleging that they violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act.
