A former kitchen worker at a University of Oregon sorority house is suing the Alpha Xi chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta over her alleged wrongful termination.
The Register-Guard reported Noel Roberts filed the suit Thursday for at least $50,000 in damages.
The lawsuit says Roberts’ face and hair were burned in a gas leak from a stove at the sorority house. Roberts also claims she was required to work 12 hours a day without breaks during her one-year stint as a cook at the house located just east of campus.
Roberts claims she was fired in 2014 after initiating an Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigation into the gas leak and filing a wage complaint.
