HOUSTON — MediCredit, Inc. is facing a suit filed by a former employee who claims her supervisor touched her inappropriately and that she faced retaliation for reporting the behavior.
The woman, who we have chosen not to name, filed a complaint Feb. 10 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against MediCredit Inc., alleging violation of the Texas Labor Code and Civil Rights Act of 1964.
She began working for MediCredit as a collection specialist on April 29, 2019. She alleges that her supervisor, Alonzo Nicholas, repeatedly touched her inappropriately and on one occasion, brushed the side of his body against her, despite her telling him the touching was unwelcome. She claims she began to face retaliation and was eventually fired after complaining to human resources and filing a claim with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
The woman seeks monetary relief, trial by jury, punitive damages and all other just relief. She is represented by R. Tate Young of The Tate Young Law Firm in Houston.
