Communication FCU Sued for Race, Age, and Gender Discrimination

A former employee, Renne Clark, in a lawsuit claims that Communication Federal Credit Union (Oklahoma City, OK) engaged in race, age, and gender discrimination and that she was wrongfully terminated by the $1 billion credit union.

The 13 page civil lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City also alleges violation of the Equal Pay Act and unethical business practices at the credit union.

The complaint further claims that male employees were not disciplined for creating a hostile work environment based on sex, gender, and race.

In paragraph 19 of the complaint, the plaintiff stated that her termination was due to her opposition to and reporting of unethical practices at the credit union, such as charging hidden fees without notifying members, not properly verifying members' identity before issuing loans or opening an account, and repossessing vehicles in violation of Oklahoma law. The complaint alleges that the credit union retaliated against her for being a whistle-blower.
