Celebrity Eatery in LA Sued for HIV Workplace Discrimination
Popular Los Angeles restaurant The Ivy is being sued for wrongfully terminating an employee on the basis of his HIV status, according to a statement from MALDEF, a leading Latino legal civil rights organization that filed the suit. The case alleges that the restaurant, which draws a celebrity crowd, violated the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and discriminated against a former employee at the beginning of last year. The suit was filed in California Superior Court in Los Angeles County. FEHA is a California protection that prohibits employment discrimination based on medical condition, race or color, religion, national origin and many other factors.
