Ruby Tuesday Lawsuit

CLARKSBURG – A complaint against Ruby Tuesday claiming discrimination and a toxic work environment has been brought forward in Harrison County, Alabama by U.S. Court Judge Irene Keeley to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The complaint, which is in the name of J.R. Davis, was filed on behalf of another male employee, who claims that Ruby Tuesday discriminated against him based upon his sex.

In a lawsuit filed by Davis against Ruby Tuesday, he claims that he was told that because of his gender, he would not be able to perform as well as a male employee in the store. He also claims that he was told that he should not wear his jewelry, because Ruby Tuesday does not deal with jewelry or diamonds. Davis further claims that he was subjected to verbal harassment because of his gender and race. In addition, Davis claims that he was required to work weekends and overtime, which he claims makes him unable to perform at the level he had been trained to perform.

This lawsuit is not the first to be filed against the retail chain that is based in Clarkstown, Alabama. In 2020, another male employee, Mark Rucker, filed a lawsuit against Ruby Tuesday, claiming that he was harassed, denied compensation for injuries and subjected to hostile work conditions. In the Rucker case, the trial court found that Ruby Tuesday had not violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and ruled that the plaintiff failed to establish a claim. The plaintiffs in that case appealed that decision. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit reversed the decision and reinstated the case.

If this new lawsuit is upheld, it would mark the third lawsuit against Ruby Tuesday that the store has been sued over. In addition to the Davis complaint, there are also lawsuits against the store in the form of a class action. Class action lawsuits, like the one filed by Davis, are brought by a group of people with a similar complaint. This new case could end up being just as controversial because of the gender issues that have been highlighted in the past.

If the lawsuit is denied, the plaintiffs will need to prove that they have a case. There is no written record of how they will do that, but many legal observers believe that they will use the same method they did with their previous lawsuit to win their appeal. In that case, they may ask to include the testimony of an expert witness, such as a doctor to testify about the effects of stress and high levels of testosterone, as well as to include testimony from someone who had worked in the store, such as a former manager or a manager at another store.

Although the trial is expected to take place before a judge, the plaintiffs’ attorney has requested that a jury trial is held so that a judge can better rule on the merits of the case. If the case is denied, they could petition the U.S. Supreme Court to hold an evidentiary hearing.

Ruby Tuesday is not the only company facing discrimination suits in the U.S., as there are two other lawsuits against Cabela’s and Gander Mountain, as well as the U.S. Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Department of Justice. These lawsuits are all dealing with the same issue: gender discrimination. Both of the lawsuits were brought against Cabela’s and Gander Mountain, both of which are chain stores that also have outlet locations throughout the U.S.

The plaintiff’s attorney, William Hinkle, believes that a jury trial is the best way to prove whether or not Ruby Tuesday’s alleged actions were discrimination, especially in light of the fact that the store was sued for refusing to hire a woman for a sales position. “In this situation, you will have two women, with equal qualifications, who are seeking to work as a team,” he said in a statement.
