Black Applebee's Waitress Says She Was Only Given Black Customers

An African-American waitress, who was terminated earlier this year, has filed a discrimination complaint against Applebee’s after she claims a manager harassed her on the job and only allowed her to only serve tables taken by black customers.

23 year-old Courtney Haywood started working at the Towson Applebee’s in 2007 as a server and bartender.
In May of 2011, she claims new management at the restaurant allowed her to serve food only to black patrons.
According to the , Haywood said “I talked to a manager, who kept saying, ‘I will take care of it, don’t worry about it.’ And nothing was taken care of.”
After filing several complaints with the company, Haywood said she was given a termination letter in October 2011.
Haywood has filed a complaint of racial discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
A communications firm for Applebee’s released a statement saying “We take these allegations very seriously. We’re fully committed to creating a fair work environment for all of our team members. We have not received a copy of the alleged complaint, so we do not have any further information to offer at this time.”
