Alleged discrimination prompted Texas woman to file lawsuit
Posted on Wednesday, October 19th, 2016
A former magazine editor-in-chief recently claimed she was discriminated against by her employer because she had breast cancer, an article of Dallas Observer reported on October 17.
According to reports, 33-year-old Jacquelyne Froeber is suing Ink Publishing Corp. and American Airlines for compensations she is owed as a result of the employers terminating her contract. Froeber signed a five-year agreement with the airline and the publishing company that provides the airline magazines. However, after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Froeber was notified that she would be transferred to Ink Publishing’s Florida office because their office in Dallas would cease operations. The transfer would require Froeber to file another job application. Froeber claims that her cancer treatment was the reason why she was discriminated against. While American Airlines commented that Froeber’s claim has no basis, the publication company did not release a statement regarding the claim.
