Compass Group USA is facing a lawsuit over alleged religious discrimination and wrongful termination, filed by former employee Courtney Rogers.
According to Rogers, she was fired after refusing to participate in a “diversity” program dubbed “Operation Equity” — a program allowing only women and people of color to receive training, mentorship, and guaranteed promotion.
Rogers, an Internal Mobility Team recruiter at Compass Group USA, voiced her concerns about the program, arguing that it conflicted with her religious belief in equality for all, regardless of race or gender. Despite assurances of no retaliatory actions, Rogers was dismissed within two weeks, allegedly for “unsatisfactory performance.”
The discrimination lawsuit criticizes Compass Group’s “Operation Equity” as a discriminatory initiative against white males, in stark contrast to its outward projection of promoting diversity.
It seeks financial compensatory damages and demands that Compass Group’s senior management attend Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Fair Treatment training. The goal is to prevent further discrimination and retaliation against employees like Rogers.
