A former Facebook employee is suing the company for a number of claims, including sex discrimination, sexual harassment and race/national origin discrimination, according to a lawsuit filed with the San Mateo County Superior Court Monday.
Chia Hong, who worked at Facebook from June 2010 to October 2013, was treated differently during her time at the company because of her race and gender, according to court documents. She was ultimately terminated in 2013, the documents say.
Hong claims that she was "belittled" at work, and was asked at one point "why she did not just stay home and take care of her children." She also claims that she was punished for taking time off to volunteer at her child's school, and "ordered to organize parties and serve drinks to male colleagues," something that wasn't in her job description.
A Facebook spokesperson denied the allegations.
