    Sad Trouble For Louis Vuitton

    Something off the news:

    January 11, 2011 -- A trial date has been set in a lawsuit filed by a former employee of Louis Vuitton's famous Rodeo Drive store in Beverly Hills, California. The former long-time employee of Louis Vuitton claims that the Rodeo Drive store fostered a culture of discrimination where store managers and salespeople frequently mocked Jewish clients.

    Lawsuit documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court state that the Jewish ex-employee was subjected to retaliation and terminated after complaining about religious harassment by her supervisor and about Louis Vuitton's practice of forcing salespeople to work every Saturday and on religious holidays. According to legal documents, under Louis Vuitton's policies, Jewish employees who wanted to attend Saturday religious services were required to use-up their limited number of vacation days and give up taking a vacations. After using up their vacations, Jewish employees could not attend Saturday services or have a Jewish holiday off until the following year. The ex-employee had requested unpaid time off to participate in a religious pilgrimage to Israel.

    Recently Jean-Paul Guerlain, allegedly a descendent of the company founder, sparked anger from US civil rights leaders, such as Al Sharpton, for saying: "I worked like a *****. I don't know if ***** always worked like that, but anyway."

    Trial is set for July 7, 2011, at the Los Angeles Superior Court.

    Sorry for using the "N-Bomb" - but that was the language that was used by Jean Paul Guerlain (the guy from the Louis Vuitton family)i as quoted in the news

    There are a whole bunch of articles - many in major newspapers. For example, I posted a link for the story from the Guardian in the UK. Here are some links I googled (but you can find a lot more):

    This story has been in several society newspapers in Beverly Hills. I think there are two jewish employees that are suing.
