CHARLESTON — A former employee is suing a technology company, alleging she was terminated due to her gender and race.
Suzanne Spillman filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against DXC Technology Co. and DXC Technology Services LLC.
The suit claims the plaintiff was employed by the defendant's predecessor in 2004 and was always a model employee. The plaintiff was informed on Nov. 15, 2018 that her employment was being terminated due to a reduction policy. The plaintiff noticed that the defendant also terminated four other employees, all of whom were female, three of whom were 55 years old or older, and two of whom were African-American.
The defendant is accused of gender discrimination, race discrimination, and retaliatory discharge.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Mary Pat Statler of Bailey & Glasser LLP in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Judge Tera Salango.
