Tampa McDonald Workers Fired After Filing Discrimination Lawsuit

TAMPA — Two McDonald’s employees were fired from their jobs after filing a federal discrimination lawsuit in middle district of Florida court that accused a manager of being racist against Black workers.

The lawsuit, filed in Tampa in July, alleged the general manager of the corporate-owned Lakeland locations cut the hours of Black workers while maintaining those of other workers, assigned Black workers menial cleaning tasks not within their job descriptions, ignored Black workers requests for time off in favor of others and made racist comments about Black customers and employees. After exposure to COVID-19, two workers in the lawsuit said they returned from quarantine only to be fired, according to their attorneys, who filed an amendment to the lawsuit Tuesday.
