Four Suits In Total Claim Issues

Three CLEAR CHANNEL/JACKSONVILLE salespeople have filed suit against the company, alleging discrimination.
ARNOLD S. GAINES of the HARPER LAW FIRM filed on behalf of ANGELA MYHAND, MONIQUE BLUE and JESSICA DOWNS, stating "this action seeks declaratory, injunctive and equitable relief, compensatory damages, costs and attorneys' fees for racial and sex discrimination and retaliation suffered by Plaintiffs."
MYHAND worked for CLEAR CHANNEL for eight years and DOWNS for six. BLUE, who is still employed by the company, has been thee for close to nine years.
The trio complain that during their employment, "CLEAR CHANNEL continuously and systematically removed large commission accounts," and "distributed the accounts to Caucasian and/or male employees," causing them "significant losses of commissions and income."
The suit also claims, "Listening devices were installed by CLEAR CHANNEL on Plaintiffs' office telephones after or about the initial filing of Plaintiffs' discrimination charges with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Plaintiff, ANGELA MYHAND, was told by an employee or agent of CLEAR CHANNEL that the device was installed so that 'they could listen to [her] conversations'."
In addition to the those 3 AE's, a fourth woman is suing CC/JACKSONVILLE -- NANCY CROCKER, who reached out to ALL ACCESS. CROCKER was employed as a Marketing Consultant at the cluster since 2008.
CROCKER, through the same attorney, ARNOLD S. GAINES, claims she lost, "more than fifteen (15) accounts to other employees who were either male or younger females."
In her suit, CROCKER claims her "age and sex is causally connected to and retaliation is a motivating factor in her mistreatment at CLEAR CHANNEL's office in JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, and such mistreatment led to her resignation.
