Former shelter employee files suit claiming workplace discrimination

A former employee of the Open Door Shelter has filed a complaint with the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, siting workplace discrimination and harassment.

Veola Kelly, 63, of Darien, who served as the front desk receptionist for seven years, filed the complaint in June, roughly one month after she was fired from the shelter.

In her complaint, Kelly alleges she was discriminated against based on her religion — she is a Jehovah’s Witness — and “bullied” by the shelter’s executive director, Jeannette Archer-Simons.
