GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A former employee of Founders Brewing Company has filed a lawsuit against the brewery alleging racial discrimination.
Tracy Evans, who is African-American, said he worked at Founders in Grand Rapids and then the company's Canal Street Brewing in Detroit for about four years.
In the 15-page suit filed in federal court in Detroit in August, Evans said he was watched more closely and disciplined more harshly than his white co-workers. He also said his co-workers used racial slurs toward him.
