EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - 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 reports (https://bit.ly/1LCtOHn ) 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.

Sorority officers didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

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.
