HOUSTON — A former Harris County Department of Education teacher alleges she faced a hostile workplace and suffered retaliation due to her gender and ethnicity. 

Kimberly Walker filed a complaint Nov. 13 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against the Harris County Department of Education (HCDE), alleging violation of Title VI and Title VII of the 1964 and 1991 Civil Rights Acts and of the 14th Amendment. 

Walker, an African-American who filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleges she was the "victim of systematic and ongoing discrimination" during her tenure with HCDE and that "HCDE personnel took no steps to stop the misconduct, to correct the offenders or to prevent similar acts of misconduct in the future."

Walker seeks monetary relief, trial by jury, interest and all other just relief. She is represented by attorney Terry Gorman of The Gorman Law Firm PLLC in Austin.
