The Brewing Company’s founders received another racial discrimination lawsuit

Just hours before Founders Brewing Co. announced. Suddenly shutting down her Detroit dining room, she’s hit with a new racial discrimination lawsuit—this one brought by a black employee who says she was promoted for “purely visual reasons” and subjected to “egregious racial harassment.”

In her lawsuit, which she filed Monday, Naima Dillard claims that after nearly two years working at the Detroit brewery, “the work environment had become so objectively racially hostile that she had no choice but to quit” last week. She alleges the harassment included co-workers who intentionally misspelled her name, warned her to be careful that her child “didn’t steal any money” from the brewery, and told her she “didn’t struggle enough to be black”.
