It seems as if celebrations in the Burch household may be put on hold. Days after it had been announced that Tory Burch’s company of her own namesake has reached profits in the level of billions of dollars, she was handed a lawsuit.

Former employee Jessica Jones, who worked at Tory Burch’s Los Angeles flagship location from July 2011 to July 2012, has presented the company with a suit for unspecified damages in regards to discrimination.

According to the report, Jones offers complaints against her supervisor Ann Oliver and other coworkers for vocalizing their issues over Jones’ race and sexuality. Jones claims that said harassment was the reason for her leaving the position after just a year.

Curious. If I were in this situation, and I was being harassed in regards to my race and sexuality, I certainly would not last a year in the position without saying anything or quitting. I also would not wait from the months of July to January before filing a suit, especially if I had already left the position.

Suspicious that this suit comes after Burch’s financial success is so publicly announced to the world? I believe so. What do you think?

It’s Called Chivalry And You Either Have It Or You Don’t

I’m tired of women saying chivalry is dead, and I am even more tired of men saying chivalry is not dead (or it is, but women killed it). Chivalry is neither dead or alive. Chivalry is chivalry; you either have it or you don’t, and a woman’s “eligibility” for it is completely irrelevant. Is it practiced […]
