Whataburger to pay $180K to settle Florida lawsuit after manager allegedly says to ‘hire white, and not black’ applicants
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Whataburger Restaurants LLC has agreed to pay $180,000 to settle a harassment and constructive discharge lawsuit after the general manager of a Florida store allegedly told her hiring manager to “hire white, and not black, applicants for employment," according to a news release. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the lawsuit alleging the general manager of a Whataburger restaurant in Tallahassee told her hiring manager, referred to as Ms. Burrows in a comment from the burger chain, to hire white applicants to “reflect the customer base where we do business." In order to stay true to these values, Whataburger remains committed to providing equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants. Whataburger believes that the allegations in this lawsuit are false, disappointing and completely counter to the culture Whataburger lives and breathes every day. Our commitment to inclusion is reflected in Whataburger’s hiring numbers in the Tallahassee, Florida, area where Ms. Burrous worked.

Target sent Banerjee a brand new Dyson vacuum cleaner along with cash for the value of a brand new Dyson vacuum cleaner. We first contacted her in 2017 to offer an apology and a new vacuum cleaner at our expense, but she would not engage with Target.
