Woman claims company fired her over sexual harassment complaint
A woman is suing a Cy-Fair company, saying that she was fired after complaining of sexual harassment.
Plaintiff Anna Prata filed a lawsuit in Harris County District Court on Nov. 16, complaining that Peripheral Computer Support Inc. (PCS) and Cy-Fair-based Computer Technology Solutions (CTS) terminated her employment because she complained that two of her bosses discriminated against her based on sex, race, age, retaliation, harassment and a hostile work environment.
Throughout her employment, Prata says, PCS-CTS's Chief Operating Officer Michael Franklin made derogatory comments that were sexual and demeaning toward women. During the last few weeks of her employment, PCS-CTS's Chief Operating Officer David Jarvis made similar comments that led her to complain about the situation. Prata's job was terminated on April 13, 2009.
Prata seeks damages, attorney's fees, expert witness fees, taxable costs of court and pre- and post-judgment interest for violation of the Texas Labor Code.
She is represented by Houston attorney Joseph Y. Ahmad.
