Mark Zuckerberg sued by former domestic workers for abuse by a “racist and sexist” assistant – .


Mr Booth is also charged with groping Doe’s butt on Mr Zuckerberg’s property in Montana in October 2018 and impersonating “obscene sex acts” in front of him and other witness employees.

Business is also putting pressure on the billionaire father of two, who is currently battling revelations in leaked internal documents at the company about how Facebook has handled disinformation and allegedly bowed to repressive regimes.

Both Mr Zuckerberg and Ms Chan, who keep their privacy closely, could be forced to give depositions in cases, which would shed light on how the 37-year-old billionaire’s family office works, which handles all of the family’s needs. .

The couple operate a network of limited liability companies to manage their household affairs, some of which are named as defendants in the complaints.

Doe claims he complained to Mr Zuckerberg and Ms Chan in February 2019 and that his contract was terminated weeks later.

The two plaintiffs also claim that they were not given the breaks from work required by law or paid for overtime, in violation of the A Fair Day’s Pay Act.

Mr Booth, whose LinkedIn profile indicates he is a former Secret Service officer who worked with Mr Zuckerberg’s family charity between 2017 and July 2019, could not be reached for comment by Business Insider , who first reported the lawsuit.

Ben LaBolt, a spokesperson for Mr. Zuckerberg, responded by saying, “The family office takes workplace malpractice complaints very seriously and investigates all such matters promptly. In this case, almost all of the allegations in these complaints were first raised through a lawyer, after both employees had left the company, and in connection with significant pecuniary claims.

“As a result of these in-depth investigations, these allegations simply could not be substantiated. We strongly believe that these employees were treated fairly and respectfully and the family office is confident that they will defeat these claims. ”
