HOUSTON — A Houston woman who worked for Pioneer Works alleges she was fired for rejecting the sexual advances of her supervisor.
Britania Randolph filed a complaint Nov. 13 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Pioneer Works Inc., alleging violation of The Texas Commission on Human Rights Act, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and USC Section 1981.
Randolph, who worked for Pioneer as an account representative, alleges on Nov. 1, 2018, her supervisor "physically assaulted her by pressing his body against her." and stated he had "never been with a black woman." After other "inappropriate" incidents, the suit states, she reported him to human resources and says she was "ultimately" fired for refusing to tolerate the sexual harassment and advances.
Randolph seeks monetary relief, trial by jury, interest and all other just relief. She is represented by attorneys Adam Poncio of The Poncio Law Offices in San Antonio and Darius Khhosravian of The DK Law Firm in Sugar Land.
