PITTSBURGH — A Pennsylvania resident is suing the Community College of Allegheny County, her former employer, citing age discrimination, gender discrimination, hostile work environment, racial discrimination and wrongful or constructive eviction.
Mary Frances Archey filed a complaint on Nov. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging they breached their duties of good faith and fair dealings.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she has suffered damages, including loss of job, salary, benefits and career opportunities; loss of professional reputation; and suffering of embarrassment, humiliation, anxiety, pain and suffering and emotional distress from defendants' unlawful conduct of demoting plaintiff from vice president to an executive director position without just cause or legitimate business reason.
Additionally, she suffered from continued bullying, retaliation, and harassment as a result of being a Caucasian female over 40 years of age, the suit says.
The plaintiff holds Community College of Allegheny County responsible because it allegedly discriminated against plaintiff based on her race, age and gender, and demoted and constructively discharged plaintiff in retaliation.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant; award plaintiff the title of vice president emeritus; and receive all damages authorized by law, all fees, costs and interest. She is represented pro se.
The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 18-1521.
