Tuesday Morning responds to ex-chief's EEOC complaint
Retail Editor 1 -- Home Textiles Today, August 6, 2012
Dallas - One day after former president and ceo Kathleen Mason filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Tuesday Morning Corp., the closeout retailer on Friday afternoon issued a statement in response to her actions.
Tuesday Morning's statement said it is "aware of certain recent media reports referring to statements" made by Mason concerning the termination of her employment and asserted her "termination was lawful and made in conformity with the terms of her Employment Agreement."
Additionally, the company said the claims are without merit. Tuesday Morning "intends to vigorously defend any such claims."
Mason, whose tenure was abruptly terminated in June, alleges she was let go after informing the board of her breast cancer.
