Black Former Administrative Aide Sues School Attended by Celebrities’ Kids | KFI AM 640

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A former administrative assistant for a private school that over the years has attended the children of many celebrities is suing her former employer today, alleging she was wrongfully fired because she was black, female and disadvantaged. He has been healthy.

Christina McCray’s Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, filed against Wildwood School, alleges wrongful termination, racial, gender and medical discrimination, disparate impact discrimination, retaliation and failure to prevent discrimination, harassment and retaliation. He is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

There was no immediate response to an email sent to the school’s media representative after regular business hours. McCree was hired in March 2019 as an administrative assistant to middle and higher administrators, and she claims she is one of the few blacks among the more than 100 employees at Wildwood School. In March, McCree underwent a job performance improvement program and was given three areas of work to improve on. He had 30 days to improve his performance and was able to correct the problems long before the deadline expired.

However, Wildwood School still managed McCree for simple tasks and deliberately found areas to criticize his work. In an attempt to get him fired, the school over-set his assignments and gave him unrealistic deadlines to complete them.

The suit alleges that weekly meetings between McCree and two supervisors were held ostensibly to improve his job performance, but were actually to “create a false record of events and set plaintiff up for failure and ultimately termination.” became. McCray took a previously authorized leave of absence in mid-June so he could have surgery, but was fired when he returned on July 5, according to the lawsuit. He refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement offered in exchange for a two-week severance package, the suit says.

McCree contends that she was fired because of her race, health, and gender, and that the school retained other employees who were not in a protected class and who had equal or worse job performance than plaintiff. McCree also believes that other Black Wildwood school employees were unfairly fired, and that some students have complained about racism and a lack of diversity at Wildwood School.

McCree began having daily anxiety attacks and was involved in a car accident one day in early 2021, leaving him with post-traumatic stress disorder. Her younger sister, who was allergic to the chemotherapy available for her stage 2 cancer, died within nine months, leaving behind a 2-year-old son, who is also the plaintiff’s nephew, the lawsuit states. The suit states that McCray has suffered further embarrassment and emotional distress since his firing.

Some of Steven Spielberg’s children, two of Dustin Hoffman’s children, and all of Demi Moore’s children, as well as Rob Reiner’s children and Meryl Streep’s daughter, attended Wildwood School. The kindergarten through 12th grade school has an elementary campus near the Los Angeles-Culver City border and a second campus for middle and high school students in West Los Angeles.
