Los Angeles (PRWEB) March 03, 2013
According to lawsuits filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, there have been three separate lawsuits filed against Argosy University by former employees who worked at the Los Angeles campus. Based on the lawsuits filed, all three lawsuits commonly allege disability discrimination as a cause of action against Argosy. See Reid v. Argosy University, Case No 482575; Brown v. Argosy University, Case No. BC488915; and Stuart v. Argosy University, Case No. BC483548.
Twila S. White represents the Plaintiff in Case No. BC 482575, Reid v. Argosy. As court documents indicate, Reid alleges that she was subjected to discrimination for taking leaves of absence associated with her pregnancy and the birth of her child. The lawsuit states that Reid, who is African American, was also denied various promotions on account of her race.
According to court documents Reid, who was an Undergraduate Studies Program Chair at Argosy, states she was pressured to admit students who did not meet admissions requirements and subjected to retaliation for objecting to the admission of these students.
A vast number of students admitted to Argosy receive federal and state funding. Argosy is associated with several independently accredited institutions owned by Education Management Corporation.
