A Black female former Honeywell Intelligrated employee can pursue claims she was passed over for promotion based on her race, made to train younger White workers who then assumed her duties, and had her disability benefits denied after she suffered a miscarriage, the Southern District of Ohio ruled.
Malissa Harmon was an installation administration specialist with the Honeywell International Inc. subsidiary. She says she was passed over for her former supervisor’s position in 2015 because she took maternity leave. The job was filled with a White woman, Misty Sanderson, while she was out, Harmon says.
