US businessman fired for being white man sues for $ 10 million

An American businessman was sued for $ 10 million for being fired from a leadership position because he is white and a man. Writes about this NBC News.

David Duvall from Michigan sues Novant Health, Inc. in 2019 after being fired as senior vice president of marketing and communications in 2018. In his lawsuit, the man indicated that the dismissal took place without reason, as part of a deliberate campaign to promote “diversity in the leadership ranks”, that is, in terms of skin color and gender.

According to NBS News, the company itself denied all accusations against itself and said that the man was fired for improper work and the transfer of critical duties to subordinates.

“We are extremely disappointed with the verdict, as we believe that it is not supported by the evidence presented in court, including our reason for dismissal,” said a representative of the firm.

Duvall said in court that two women were taken in his place at once: a white and a dark-skinned one.

In the end, the jury decided that Duval’s race or gender was the main factor in the dismissal. Gazeta.Ru
