A Rutgers University employee has filed a lawsuit against the University after claiming she was not given a promotion due to her race, according to an article on NJ Advance Media.
Eleanor Bullock, a member of the Rutgers University Procurement Services, said that the University had hired several white men and women for jobs over the years that she had applied for, according to the article.
Bullock said that she was repeatedly denied these positions without an explanation, a violation of the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, according to the article.
The lawsuit was filed earlier this month, according to the article.
“No one, absolutely no one of authority in University Procurement, has ever sat with the plaintiff to help, to guide, to consult, to direct, to assist, to support except to simply deny her of the opportunity which she believes is the result of blatant discrimination and racism,” Bullock’s attorney wrote, according to the article.
A Rutgers University spokeswoman said that the University will not comment on pending litigation, according to the article.
