Valeria Jones is suing Bon Appetit Management Co. for humiliation and suffering following repeated attempts to get the unwelcome misgendering stopped. Complaints to managers and human resources went unanswered. Jones has since quit working for the company.
Jones is suing for $518,000. Jones’ attorney made no comments and the company stated that they are an equal opportunity employer that embraces diversity of all kinds.
If Jones did indeed ask the employer put a stop to this and they took no action, Jones has a valid claim, because, after all, it amounts to bullying by both coworkers and the employer.
