Oprah’s OWN Network Hit With Discrimination Suit by Ex-Employee

Aug 16, 2010  •  Post A Comment

A former employee of Oprah Winfrey’s OWN–Oprah Winfrey Network–is suing the network claiming wrongful termination and that she was subjected to a hostile work environment because she suffers from multiple sclerosis, reports TMZ.com.

Catherine Dunn started at OWN as an assistant in August 2008 and claims that she needed to take a stress leave and a leave of absence because her symptoms were made worse by the stress at the job.

She alleges that the network replaced her with a "non-disabled and younger employee" while she was out on leave, the story says. She’s asking for unspecified damages.

There wasn’t any comment from OWN, the story says.


  1. Oh, the humanity! Wait till billionaire Oprah gets back from another ‘road trip’ with her ‘special’ friend Gayle.
    Boy, will she be mad!

  2. Love all the opinions expressed here! How is everyone? Love how everyone expresses whatr they feel 🙂

  3. Utterly composed articles , Really enjoyed looking at .
