Two people who used to work in the family of Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have filed lawsuits against them, accusing the couple of discrimination and sexual harassment. This was reported by NBC television on October 27.
It is noted that the lawsuit was filed back on September 20, but it became known only on October 26. The plaintiffs are John Doe, an unknown person named John Doe, who worked for the family as a “household manager” from January 2017 to March 2019, and Mia King, who from May 2018 to February 2019 worked for Limitless Specialty Services LLC, a company that provides security services for the Zuckerberg family.
In addition to discrimination and sexual harassment, Zuckerberg and Chan are also accused of failing to pay employees on time.
The network clarified that Facebook is not directly involved in the lawsuits.
Family spokesman Ben LaBolt criticized the allegations against Zuckerberg and said they could not be confirmed.
“We are proud of the team of professionals who work in the family office, and we are confident that these allegations, aimed at unfairly disparaging our colleagues, will fail,” NBC quoted LaBolt as saying.
According to the network, the court has not scheduled a hearing in the case, and no one from the family has formally responded to the court.
