Ryan’s Steakhouse in Asheville has the EEOC sizzling after one of the eatery’s managers berated and eventually fired a 79-year-old worker.
Restaurant worker Viola Brown was fired following a series of incidents she claims betrayed a prejudice against older workers.
Brown’s EEOC complaint claims she heard from a co-worker that the manager referred to her as “old woman” and hinted that she should retire. Soon after, she found her hours being steadily cut back until she was working only nine a week.
Things really heated up when the manager wrote up Brown for a disciplinary infraction. She refused to sign it, and the manager fired her.
That’s when Brown filed her complaint—and now the EEOC is suing the steakhouse on her behalf.
