Wakefern Food Corp., owner of local ShopRite food markets, recently was hit with two employee discrimination lawsuits.

Case 1: The EEOC alleges the company discriminated against disabled employees when it closed a warehouse in Walkill. The company agreed to pay severance to employees who worked through the closure, but didn’t pay 22 employees who were on disability leave at the time.

Case 2: A female employee at an Ulster County ShopRite filed a sex discrimination suit, claiming that a male supervisor physically and verbally harassed her so severely that she sought a protection order. Store management allegedly ignored her complaints.
