HOUSTON – A Lufkin woman filed a lawsuit against Memorial Hermann Health System after it allegedly retaliated against her for complaining about sex and age discrimination.
Barbara Trimble’s lawsuit, filed on Nov. 21 in the Harris County 129th District Court, claims her co-workers subjected her to remarks of a sexual nature in addition to discriminatory comments about her age and health when the defendant employed her as a charge nurse.
According to recent court documents, Trimble complained about the comments to her supervisors and the human resources department to no avail.
“The plaintiff’s complaints led to retaliation and the work conditions became so intolerable that she was constructively discharged on May 15, 2015,” the suit says.
Consequently, Trimble seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
She is represented by attorney Derrick G. Parker of the D.G. Parker Law Firm, PLLC in Houston.
