A woman is suing an East Memphis Sprouts Farmers Market alleging racial discrimination and multiple incidents of inappropriate comments made to her while she was on the job, the Commercial Appeal reports. Soon after she started at the location, Maya Mckenzie quickly began to experience unwanted sexual advances from the regional grocery manager and regional director, according to the lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday. Among other accusations, Mckenzie says the regional grocery manager offered to pay her car note in exchange for sexual favors. The lawsuit went on to cite allegations of racial discrimination and targeting black employees for termination.
