Tesco accused of failing to protect Cy-Fair employee from harassment
A woman is suing Tesco, her former employer, over claims the company retaliated against her for reporting racial harassment at its Cy-Fair location.
Mia Stewart filed a lawsuit on Nov. 11 in Harris County District Court against Tesco Corp., with an office in Cy-Fair, citing employment discrimination, racial harassment and retaliation.
Stewart says, as a senior human resources manager at Tesco’s Cy-Fair location, she endured racist comments and actions by the company’s vice president, Randy Nemeth.
The suit alleges the company terminated Stewart after she complained of this behavior.
Stewart is seeking damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Peter Costea.
