MOUNDSVILLE — A mother and daughter are suing their employer, alleging they were unfairly discriminated against in the workplace.
Susan Birch and Chrystal Webb filed a complaint in Marshall Circuit Court against the Northern Panhandle Community Criminal Justice Board.
The suit states Birch has been employed by the defendant for more than 15 years. The suit states that Webb, the plaintiff's daughter, began working for the defendant in 2014. Plaintiffs claim they were routinely exposed to discriminatory and retaliatory actions, including harassment about Birch's age in order to intimidate her into retirement. In November 2018, the plaintiff was transferred to the Wheeling office, leaving behind a team of employees who were all at least 20 years younger than the plaintiff.
The defendant is accused of age discrimination, retaliation, association discrimination, and construction discharge.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Nicholas Wininsky of Wininsky Law Offices in Pittsburgh.
