The former General Manager for the Red Lobster in Horseheads is suing the chain restaurant for $5 million dollars.
Miquelle Fountain claims she was subjected to sexist discrimination, aggression, hostility and harassment.
After reporting these issues to Red Lobster repeatedly, nothing was done on her behalf to resolve the issues.
Fountain was an employee of the restaurant chain for 13 years and started as a server.
She’s also claiming wrongful termination, saying Red Lobster failed to investigate claims made against her before firing her.
She added that she was treated differently because of the color of her skin and stated that the white managers were treated differently.
