City of San Antonio Hit With Class Action Lawsuit from Employees Who Allege Workplace Harassment

The City of San Antonio is facing a class action lawsuit filed by two female former maintenance workers that allege they were continuously sexually harassed by their male supervisors at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

In a suit filed in Bexar County district court, the plaintiffs maintain that they were victims of gender discrimination, bullying and physical abuse, which created a “sexually charged” and “toxic” work environment. The suit was filed Friday by the law offices of FeganScott.

Personnel with the city attorney’s office were unavailable for immediate comment.
