A. Karen Brock of Carmel, Indiana, filed a complaint on Dec. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against The Vanguard Group, alleging that the employer terminated her employment as retaliation for reporting information to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she sustained damages from being terminated from her employment and from derogatory claims Vanguard made about her.
