Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) is involved in yet another discrimination and harassment lawsuit in Federal Court. The pattern of hiring friends and family members in this county has greatly contributed to a system plagued by hostile and grossly unethical environment which is an ongoing issue.
The case at hand involves violations of Title VII of The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”), 42 U.S.C. §2000-e et seq. and the Maryland Fair Employment Practices Act (“MFEPA”), Md. Code., State Gov’t § 20-601 et seq. for unlawfully discriminating against Ms. Churchill because of her gender and sexual orientation and for retaliation.
On December 1, 2017, the Federal Judge issued an opinion and dismissed some claims and allowed others to move forward. (See below)
