Hampstead woman sues USDA claiming sex bias

A Hampstead woman has filed suit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, claiming sex discrimination in her job.

Diana Safar alleges that she was denied a promotion by the Carroll County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service because she was pregnant.

According to her suit, she filed a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and a settlement was reached, but afterward her supervisor subjected her to "continual abuse and harassment." Eventually she resigned, but later she applied again for the higher-level job that she had been denied.

In the interview, the suit alleges, she was questioned about the EEOC complaint.

Ms. Safar is seeking back pay and other damages.

The trial is expected to start next week in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.
