New York City Restaurant Boycotted over Age Discrimination Claims by its Employees

Major New York City Restaurant, the Saigon Grill is presently the subject of protests and pickets by its employees. The employees of the Vietnamese restaurant are claiming they are being treated unfairly as a result of their age.

One of the protesters claims they fired him after complaining about alleged age discrimination. They also claim that waiters and busboys who were over the age of 40 were fired, as well, because of their age. Both age discrimination and retaliation after complaining of discrimination are protected under the employment discrimination laws.

In 2008, thirty-six Chinese employees of the restaurant were awarded a $4.6 million settlement for labor law violations such as failure to pay overtime and paying some employees less that $2 per hour.
