HOUSTON — Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) is facing a suit filed by a former employee claiming her pay was delayed for taking family medical leave and that she was fired in retaliation for complaining about the pay delay.
Eva Stramaski filed a complaint Jan. 15 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against TEES and Mark Lawley alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to her complaint, Stramaski worked for TEES as a Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering academic advisor. After being out of the office due to a "surgical procedure," she alleges that her pay was delayed due to her family medical leave. Stramaski claims that after complaining about her pay delay, she began to face retaliation including facing false allegations and being terminated on March 7, 2019.
Stramaski seeks monetary relief, trial by jury, interest and all other appropriate relief. She is represented by Adam Greenfield of Cloutman & Greenfield PLLC in Dallas and Kalandra Wheeler of Wiley Wheeler PC in Houston.
