Ex-Employee Sues WeHo Pharmacy After Alleging Management Made Her Quit

A former employee of a West Hollywood pharmacy is suing the business, alleging she was forced to quit earlier this year after management failed to implement any coronavirus safety measures and mocked her for wearing a mask at work.

Angelica Dayrit also alleges in her Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit that Alex Sirota, owner of Curson Pharmacy, showed sexually explicit videos of gay male sex that offended her as a lesbian. Her lawsuit allegations include sexual orientation discrimination, sexual harassment, both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, and wrongful constructive termination.

Curson Pharmacy is located at 7559 Santa Monica Blvd., at Curson Avenue.

Dayrit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages in the suit filed Friday. The pharmacy was closed Sunday and no one there could be reached for comment.

Dayrit was hired at Curson Pharmacy in November 2015 as a pharmacy technician and paid $20 an hour, the suit states. After the outbreak of the coronavirus, she found herself working in a confined space in which six feet of social distancing was not viable at the Santa Monica Boulevard business, according to her suit.
