Our client, a nationwide grocery store chain, faced a lawsuit from a disgruntled former store management employee who was re-assigned after store surveillance footage caught her giving away bunches of fresh roses to store customers for free at the end of the day – a direct violation of the store’s policies. Following an investigation that determined the employee’s bouquet bonanza violated store policy, the store offered her a demotion. Rather than accept this offer, she resigned, all the while claiming that she was authorized and entitled to give away store produce and products without consequences. Within days of her resignation, she sued for sexual harassment, gender discrimination, retaliation, defamation and wrongful termination. )
