A US jury has awarded a former Genentech employee nearly $250,000 after the black worker was fired from the firm after filing a racial-discrimination complaint against his manager.
Timothy Pruitt, 56, was fired from Genentech in 2017 after working at the company’s Vacaville offices for 21 years.
While Pruitt was fired over allegations that he had falsified timecards and stolen half a sandwich, the IT worker claimed the action came in retaliation after he submitted a discrimination complaint against his manager, Steve Graeff.
