Facebook Sued By Former Staffer Alleging Sex Discrimination, Harassment, Other Charges


A former Facebook employee is suing the social networking giant for alleged sex discrimination and harassment, discrimination and harassment based on race or national origin, and wrongful discharge from the company, among other charges.

In a lawsuit filed this week in San Mateo, plaintiff Chia Hong said that she started working at Facebook in June 2010, when she was hired as a program manager. In October 2012, the suit says, she was transferred to a Technology Partner role, and she was fired from the company a year later in October 2013.

Hong, who is Taiwanese, makes 11 separate legal claims in the suit, alleging that while at Facebook she suffered from discrimination and harassment based on her gender and her race and nationality, was retaliated against after she complained about such treatment, and was ultimately unlawfully fired from the company. She is also alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress.
