As always, it is much cheaper to just not be racist. Former Bulleit blender, Eboni Major has filed a lawsuit against spirits giant, Diageo, the owner of the whiskey brand, for disparate treatment, unlawful discrimination, and retaliation based on race. The claim says that the actions of the company violate the New York City Human Rights Law. Per reports made by Whiskey Raiders, the suit suggests that Major, who is a Black woman, faced “sever and pervasive discrimination,” which includes unfair treatment versus her white women counterparts. The case highlights that the treatment specifically included imbalanced compensation and expectation as well as the fact that her work was often credited to white employees.
