Just a couple days ago we posted about a Richmond Woman fired hours after hiring by KFC for being transgender. In an amazing turnabout, the manager who did this was fired and Carter was offered a job at any of the local stores.
Georgia Carter, 27, was ecstatic after being hired, answering only four questions by the manager, none of which asked if she was trans. But after the interview, within minutes, the manager called her at home and said she was fired because of her trans status.
But on Tuesday, national KFC spokespeople said in a statement to BuzzFeed News that the company decided instead to fire the manager and offer the woman, Georgia Carter, a job “effective immediately.”
“The manager has been terminated for violating the franchisee’s anti-discrimination policy, which is inclusive of gender identity and sexual orientation,” KFC said in a statement on Tuesday to BuzzFeed News. The company said the decision came after the owner of the franchise restaurant in Richmond investigated the situation.
“The franchisee’s leadership has also had a conversation with Ms. Carter,” the statement read, “offering her employment at this restaurant or any of their Richmond area KFC restaurants, effective immediately
@elielcruz KFC will not tolerate discrimination. The franchisee terminated this manager & Ms Carter was offered a job at any Richmond KFC
