A woman is suing a Williamson County-based bank, alleging gender and age discrimination, The Tennessean reports. Reliant Bank, headquartered in Cool Springs with five branches around the county, is being sued by one of its employees who says the bank's management failed to address offensive comments made about her after she reported the incident. The plaintiff, Patricia Berry, alleges that various members of the company made crude and offensive comments to her, sent verbally abusive emails and even posted her job position online around the time she turned 65. Berry is seeking $300,000 and an injunction ordering Reliant from taking further retaliation against her.
