Deb S. White, a letter carrier who was employed by the United States Postal Service for more than 24 years, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court Thursday against Postmaster General Megan Brennan — the executive officer for the nation’s postal service — for harassment and hostility while she was assigned to work at the Toledo-Reynolds Corners Station, 6020 W. Bancroft St., according to the complaint.
Beginning in July, 2018, Ms. White claims she became a target of bullying from co-workers, who were African-American. The harassment consisted of verbal taunts, raised voices, and staring — which varied in intensity each day — but became a regular occurrence, Ms. White’s attorneys, Catherine Killam and Matthew Bryant, wrote in the complaint.
“[Ms. White] reasonably found the work environment frightening, so frightening that it affected her ability to perform her duties, as well as her general feelings of well being,” the complaint stated.
