Victor’s New York Beer Project accused of discrimination in employment claim

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed a lawsuit against the New York Beer Project in Victor accusing the establishment of discriminating against employees due to their medical conditions. The lawsuit centers on the alleged wrongful termination of two bartenders, one diagnosed with cancer and the other who experienced a nocturnal seizure, despite both having medical clearance to resume work.


According to the EEOC, after receiving the necessary medical clearances, the employees were nonetheless dismissed from their positions, which the commission contends constitutes discrimination based on disability. The federal agency is tasked with enforcing laws against workplace discrimination.

In response, the New York Beer Project vehemently denied the allegations, stating that it does not and will not discriminate based on medical conditions or any other characteristic. The company expressed its intention to strongly contest the charges, describing them as “baseless.”
