HOUSTON — A Houston man is suing Westinghouse Electric Co., his former employer, citing alleged hostile work environment and racial discrimination.
Feldon Barlow filed a complaint on Jan. 13 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Westinghouse Electric Co. alleging that the employer violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, Barlow alleges that as a result of defendant's intentional discrimination, he has suffered and will continue to experience pain and suffering, severe mental anguish, loss of earnings, employment benefits and job opportunities. He holds Westinghouse Electric Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly created an intimidating, oppressive, hostile and overtly offensive work environment and subjected him to disparate and discriminatory treatment because of his race.
Barlow requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, attorney's fees, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs of court and expert witness fees and such other equitable relief. He is represented by Troy J. Pradia and Shasta P.C. Blanton of The Cox Pradia Law Firm PLLC in Houston.
