Daphne Richards was a full-time manager at a Colorado Chick-fil-A when she received a breast cancer diagnosis in May. She took leave for a double mastectomy and when she had been cleared to return to work, she was shocked when management told her she was being demoted:
Richards' documents show that not only was she being demoted, she was going from a 40-plus hour work week to a 10-to-15-hour week and her hourly wage was dropping from $14 to $10 per hour.
After the story began gaining attention, management eventually offered to increase her hours, but maintain she was demoted for poor performance and out of concern she wouldn't be able to handle the work load.
Daphne Richards plans to keep fighting:
Richards has filed a discrimination charge with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission and plans to keep fighting.
"I know that this is morally wrong," said Richards. "I believe in my heart that it can't be legal what she's doing to me."
So much for operating the company based on "biblical values."
