LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former security guard at the Nevada National Security Site is suing her former employer over allegations she was sexually assaulted and harassed by colleagues and then retaliated against for reporting the incidents.

Jennifer Glover said in her lawsuit filed Monday that security firm Centerra created a work environment with "rampant and vicious gender-based discrimination" where colleagues made inappropriate sexual comments, a co-worker exposed himself to her and several colleagues assaulted her during a training exercise.

The Associated Press doesn't typically name alleged victims of sexual assault but Glover held a news conference Monday and said she consented to be identified.

Centerra did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Monday. The firm said previously it "took appropriate disciplinary action" after Glover made her allegations.
