A former employee of Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network is claiming she was discriminated against while employed by the company. TMZ.com is reporting that Catherine Dunn has filed a lawsuit alleging that she was “subjected to a hostile work environment” because she suffers from multiple sclerosis. According to the suit — which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday — Dunn began working at OWN as an assistant in August of 2008. During her time with the company, Dunn claims she was forced to take stress leave as well as a leave of absence because her MS symptoms were made worse by workplace stress. While out on leave, Dunn says she was replaced by a “non-disabled and younger employee.” She is suing for wrongful termination, and is seeking unspecified damages. The OWN network has yet to comment on the lawsuit.

    Nah somebody wanna sue Oprah on some bogus discrimination charge!..smdh… If she was gonna discriminate against yo azz why would she even bother hiring a MS patient huh??.. Ppl are just ruthless and always looking for a quick buck1 I dont believe this not one bit! Annnnnnd if her MS was flaring up due to the work environment (Which i’m positive is stressful b/c you’re working for Oprah duh!!!) I would think it befitting for her to take a leave of absence or look into other forms of employment if this one was too much for her illness! Dumb broad..Noone believes you… you need more people!!!
