Whole Foods disciplines workers wearing Black Lives Matter face masks: lawsuit

This post was originally published on this site

The complaint accused Whole Foods, a unit of Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN), of sending employees home without pay or threatening to fire them for wearing the masks, on the ground it violated the company’s dress code, even as it let workers conveying other messages continue doing so.

One plaintiff, Savannah Kinzer, said she was fired on Saturday after organizing co-workers to wear Black Lives Matter masks and protest Whole Foods’ discipline.

Whole Foods had no immediate comment. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Boston.
