The AP (7/13) reported, “A Latino civil rights organization sued an international gym chain, accusing 24 Hour Fitness of racial and gender discrimination against its workers in California.
The lawsuit filed by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund and a law firm claimed that black, Latino, Asian and female staffers systematically hit glass ceilings when they applied for management jobs at some of the company’s approximately 200 California clubs.”
The suit claims “the fitness club violated state anti-discrimination laws and seeks class-action status, which would allow it to represent an estimated 10,000 California employees of the fitness chain.”
