Colleen Dominguez is a respected sports reporter who used to work for ESPN. In 2014, she left the sports titan in Bristol to work for Fox Sports One, a relatively new sports network that wants to compete with ESPN. For such a high-profile move by such a high-profile reporter, it seems odd that we haven't seen much of Colleen Dominguez on Fox Sports One since. This is because she has been locked in a discrimination lawsuit with FS1 after Dominguez alleged she was treated differently than younger women and all men at the network.
In addition, Dominguez claimed that FS1 executives were more concerned about how she looked on camera than the the information she was reporting on camera.
The lawsuit has been going on for some time now, but recently it was settled "with prejudice" (which means Dominguez can't file the suit again) and no details were released about the settlement. Hopefully this means Dominguez can return to normal reporting duties sooner rather than later.
This saga is an example of the unfortunate fact that many women face unmatched criticism and scorn in many workplaces, to the point that their merits mean less than how they look or act. It is also a crushing reminder that discrimination is a wide-ranging beast that should never be accepted.
When you are unfairly treated because of your nationality, race, gender, sexual orientation or religion (among many other potential factors), you should consult with an experienced attorney to discuss your case. Legal counsel is crucial to make sure you are proceeding with your case appropriately and to protect and uphold your rights during a critical time.
