CHARLESTON — DXC, a health information management company, has filed a notice of removal in federal court in a case involving a former employee claiming she was fired due to her gender, race and age.
According to a U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia Charleston Division filing, DXC Technology Company and DXC Technology Services LLC filed a notice to remove a lawsuit filed by Suzanne Spillman alleging gender and race discrimination and retaliatory discharge to federal court.
Spillman, who began working as a provider relations specialist/configurations analyst in Charleston for DXC's predecessors in 2004, filed the suit after she was fired following a DXC acquisition.
Spillman, an African-American, said only she and four other employees were fired after the acquisition. According to the suit, all five employees who were fired were female, three out of five were at least 55 years old and two were African American.
In her suit, Spillman said she was a "model employee" who received company awards, positive evaluations, raises and bonuses. She alleges gender and race discrimination and retaliatory discharge.
Spillman seeks economic and non-economic damages and punitive damages, along with attorneys' fees and costs.
