Hospitality Industry Legal Risks: California Hotel Employee Files “Racial Discrimination And Harassment” Lawsuit; Painter “Unjustly Fired”, Exposed To Unsafe Working Conditions

“…The suit claims (the plaintiff) was unjustly fired from his position after he was instructed to complete tasks typically subcontracted to outside vendors. The Hospitality Industry Discrimination Lawsuitscourt filing also claims two of the hotel’s buildings had serious water damage and mold issues, but management failed to properly train employees or equip them with the right safety equipment, exposing Tobin to unsafe working conditions…”

Ronald Tobin, a former employee at Fess Parker DoubleTree Hilton, is suing the joint resort company and three of its supervisors for alleged discrimination and unfair business practices while he worked there as a painter for nearly three years.

Tobin, who’s African-American, claims he was subjected to discrimination and harassment at the DoubleTree because of his race, and that the human resources department neglected to investigate or address his complaints. During an event at the hotel, the lawsuit reads, one of Tobin’s supervisors talked about the chicken and watermelon being served, and used the phrases “you people” and “your food.” “[The supervisor] continued to state that he does not know why African-Americans refer to themselves that way when white people do not say ‘Caucasian-Americans,’” the filing reads. The lawsuit also states another employee regularly used the “n-word” without being reprimanded.
