Salad Chain Sweetgreen Sued by Employees Alleging Racial Discrimination, Sexual Harassment

Ten former and current Sweetgreen employees are suing the salad chain, saying they experienced racial discrimination and sexual harassment.

The lawsuit, which was originally filed in March by two plaintiffs, was amended Thursday to include 10 plaintiffs. Filed in the New York Supreme Court in the Bronx, it names two general managers — referred to as “head coaches” — as defendants, in addition to the company.

The suit alleges that the plaintiffs were subjected to racial slurs, and experienced inferior treatment based on race by managers and coworkers at seven different New York City locations.
