UT Austin Professor Suing School Over Retaliation for Pay Disparities

AUSTIN, Texas — A professor with the University of Texas at Austin’s Department of History is suing the school because he said he was retaliated against by a supervisor.

He said it happened after he distributed a report pointing out race-related pay and promotion disparities in the history department.

According to the lawsuit, in the spring of 2018, plaintiff Alberto Martinez notified his supervisor and coworkers that there was “discrimination” and “marginalization” of Hispanic employees in the Department of History. Consequently, the lawsuit stated that Martinez was appointed the chair of a new “Committee on Equity,” which was tasked to review governance, salaries and promotions in the department.
