Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
EEOC v. Newport News Industrial Corp. (Gender Discrimination)
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) claims that Newport News Industrial Corporation (a subsidiary of Huntington Ingalls Industries) violated federal law by firing Julia Horton after she complained about being subjected to a hostile work environment. According to the EEOC, Newport News Industrial fired Julia Horton 17 days after she complained that the superintendent at the Brunswick Nuclear Power Plant in Southport, North Carolina treated her in an aggressive, intimidating, sarcastic, and condescending manner because of her gender. The EEOC alleges this violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
