TYLER — A former Tyler Ford employee claims she was fired due to her age.
Patricia Williams filed a complaint Dec. 30 in the Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Tyler Ford LTD alleging violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.
Williams began working for Tyler in July of 2001. She alleges a new general manager blamed her for accounting errors that were not her fault, stated he was concerned about her health due to her heart surgery and breast cancer and told her she would have a job as long as she "stayed healthy." Willaims, who was 75 at the time, claims she was fired and replaced by another co-worker, who was approximately 40 years old with no experience. She received a right to sue from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Dec. 11, 2019.
Williams seeks monetary relief, trial by jury and all other just relief. She is represented by William Hommel, Jr., of The Hommel Law Firm in Tyler.
