College Dean Fired Because of Gender

November 19th, 2018

Philadelphia wrongful termination lawyers fight for women who were fired because of their gender.Women have come a long way in the fight for equality in the workplace, but countless situations still exist where women are discriminated against based on gender alone. A community college dean recently claimed that she was fired solely because of her gender, and she has raised her voice through a lawsuit against her employer.

The former Dean of Institutional Research and Effectiveness began working at the community college in 2008 and was terminated in 2017. She claims that when her former supervisor, a woman, was promoted to college president in 2015, things began to change. Her new supervisor complained about her aggressive manor and tone of voice, qualities she says were praised in her male colleagues. She was also forced into a performance improvement plan for training in emotional intelligence, which she felt was designed to make her more of a nurturer and caregiver. She also received criticism for not encouraging a junior male colleague, and calling his proposal flawed. Not long before she was fired, she was suspended for one week for being condescending to a male colleague.

When the former dean complained about her treatment, she says she was retaliated against and her civil rights were denied. Through her lawsuit, she hopes to win financial compensation for her distress, and pain and suffering for the wages she lost due to her firing and for the future loss of wages she anticipates based on her termination.
