A 40-year-old vocal teacher is suing the School of Rock chain of music schools, claiming she was harassed because of her age and wrongfully terminated in retaliation for engaging in protected activities.
The teacher claims she was once considered the most popular vocal teacher at the School of Rock franchise in West Los Angeles until she complained about age discrimination and harassment. Then, she said, the school changed its tune—reducing her hours and rescinding a transfer it had previously offered. She claims the moves were retaliation for her complaints that younger instructors were paid more than older ones.
School of Rock officials, she asserts, told her that she was no longer “young and hip enough.”
The teacher claims the harassment was ongoing and that the School of Rock has failed to rehire her, causing her humiliation and embarrassment. Her suit seeks reinstatement, plus damages for economic losses and physical and emotional distress.
