Lawsuit Against Georgio Armani Alleges Disability Discrimination, National Origin Discrimination, Retaliation, and Hostile Work Environment

In a recently-filed lawsuit, Silva v. Georgio Armani Corp. et al (filed NY Sup. Ct., NY Cty., Index # 159449/2015) (complaint here), plaintiff Fabio Silva – formerly defendant’s General Counsel and VP for Legal Affairs – alleges that defendant discriminated against him based on his Mexican nationality and his colon cancer diagnosis and retaliated against him for engaging in protected activity, in violation of the New York City Human Rights Law.

Among other things, plaintiff alleges that Georgio Armani’s CFO told him that he does “not trust Mexicans” and that the company told him that it was terminating him “just minutes after” plaintiff told a company executive of his cancer diagnosis.
