McDonald's facing business litigation over alleged discrimination

Most major companies are no stranger to lawsuits. Still, the fact that they have faced them before and will likely face them again does not make them any easier to handle. In any case, a company could suffer because of the claims of others, and business litigation can be time consuming, costly and difficult to handle for any type of claim.

Florida readers may be interested in a lawsuit that was recently filed against McDonald's. According to reports, two African American executives have filed a discrimination lawsuit against the company, indicating that they faced a hostile work environment and were treated unfairly due to their race. The two workers had once been vice president of the company, but they were both demoted to senior directors when corporate restructuring took place in 2018. The workers believe that it was a direct attempt to remove African American workers from senior ranks.

McDonald's issued a statement indicating that the company disagrees with the complaints and plans to address those claims accordingly. At the time of the report, it was unclear the exact amount of monetary damages the workers are pursuing. However, it was noted that they have apparently lost over $2 million in pay. 

Claims of discrimination and hostile work environments can come against any company. Hopefully, company owners and employers do their best to prevent such claims and have policies in place that could help them defend against complaints if they do arise. If Florida companies are facing business litigation over these types of claims, they may want to thoroughly explore their available legal options.
