Discrimination Lawsuit Filed In Los Angeles Against High-End Designer Store, Tory Burch

An African-American, Bi-Sexual woman who was a former employee of Tory Burch has filed a lawsuit  against the store and one of her co-workers, claiming she suffered workplace discrimination.

In her lawsuit, she claims customers at the Los Angeles store were told not to talk to her because of her sexual orientation. She claims employees made insulting remarks about her girlfriend concerning her visits to the store. The co-worker also purportedly asked her repeatedly if she was eating fried chicken at lunch. Managers at the store were also said to have used derogatory terms about her race.

In addition to the other complaints, she stated a male manager sexually harassed her and potentially others by leaving partially clad photos of himself on computers other workers used. Although, she complained to management about the issues, she alleges there was no relief because the co-worker involved happened to be one of the manager's friends. She ultimately quit her job due to the mistreatment.

Both Federal and California employment laws prohibit discrimination based on an employee’s protected characteristics.  According to California laws, “protected characteristics” refers to: race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, age, or sexual orientation.

If you have been discriminated against for one of the above "protected characteristics", please give my office, The Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman at 877-449-8898 for a free consultation.
