Oprah's OWN sued for discrimination
Assistant says she was forced out because of her MS
A former employee at Oprah Winfrey's OWN network is suing the company for creating "a hostile work environment" because she suffers from Multiple Sclerosis.
Catherine Dunn began working as an assistant in August 2008, and according to TMZ, was forced to take stress leave and a leave of absence when "her MS symptoms were exacerbated because of the workplace stress."
Dunn's lawsuit states that her position was filled by a "non-disabled and younger employee" while she was on leave, and she is suing for wrongful termination. Dunn seeks unspecified damages.
