TMZ is reporting that Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network has been sued by a former employer with Multiple Sclerosis who alleges that workplace stress worsened her condition. According to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Catherine Dunn was an assistant at OWN starting in August 2008 and claims she was “subjected to a hostile work environment” because of her condition.

Dunn claims she was forced to take a stress leave as well of a leave of absence because her symptoms were exacerbated by workplace stress. When out on leave, Dunn was replaced by “a non-disabled and younger employee,” according to the lawsuit.

Dunn is suing for wrongful termination, among other things. She is asking for unspecified damages.

A spokesperson for OWN told EW, “We have not seen the lawsuit. We are unaware of the claims. When and if we see something we will review appropriately.”
