Lake Jackson employee claims wrongful termination
Lake Jackson resident Kristin Lee Dial filed a complaint in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Shell Deer Park Refinery. Dial claims she was wrongfully terminated from her post after she reported a sexual harassment incident.
According to the lawsuit, Dial had a short-lived relationship with her co-worker, Christopher Carrizales, outside of the workplace. Dial said during her employment from August 2014 through December 2014, she was sexually harassed by Carrizales after she ended her relationship with him. She then reported Carrizales’ behavior to her team leader, Benjamin Stafford, who told her if she reported the incident to human resources, she and Carrizales would be terminated from their posts.
