The EEOC's Houston district office sued TIG Capital Securities Company on September 25, 2003 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII when it discriminated based on sex (female) by forcing a pregnant employee to take unpaid leave before firing her.
