Former Tuesday Morning CEO files discrimination lawsuit again ex-employer

BY Dan Berthiaume

Dallas — Kathleen Mason, former CEO of Tuesday Morning, has filed a lawsuit against her ex-employer in Dallas District Court claiming discrimination. Mason, who was fired last June, alleges that Tuesday Morning mistreated and then terminated her within months after learning she was suffering from breast cancer.

"Kathleen Mason did more than any employee in Tuesday Morning’s history to promote the company and make sure it was financially strong, but she ended up getting fired over the phone soon after telling board members that she was battling breast cancer. Our hope is that this lawsuit will hold Tuesday Morning accountable for discriminating against Kathleen based on assumptions about her ability to do her job despite her demonstrated effective leadership,” said Mason’s attorney Rogge Dunn of Clouse Dunn LLP.

Mason had previously filed a discrimination claim with the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission. Tuesday Morning has not yet publicly commented on the suit or her allegations.
