Indiana Principal Claims He Was Wrongfully Terminated Based on Race and Sex

Oct 9, 2013 | Wrongful Termination


October 9, 2013

Every citizen in Indiana is protected from discrimination in the workplace based on sex, race, gender, and sexual orientation through Tile VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Indiana Civil Rights Law. The Indiana Wrongful Termination Lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys explain that any failure to uphold these laws could result in civil litigation against the responsible parties.

According to an article from the Greensburg Daily News, one such case will be allowed to move forward. A former principal of Gary Middle College in Gary, Indiana, alleges he was terminated from his position because of his race and sex.

Court documents show that the plaintiff was hired for the position in March 2012. On Jan. 25, 2013, he received a termination letter stating he was being relieved of his duties due to behavioral and work performance issues.

Court documents showed the plaintiff had never been the subject of any prior disciplinary action and female Caucasian employees had been treated differently when similar disciplinary issues arose. The findings show there has been a violation of the law and that action in the matter is pursuable.

Stewart & Stewart Attorneys’ team of Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers is aware of how devastating a wrongful termination can be to an individual’s personal and professional life. The firm is here to help anyone who believes they were discriminated against in the workplace.
