I’m not rude, just French, says Canadian server who was fired for ‘combative’ attitudeGuillaume Rey isn’t rude.
He’s just French.
That’s what the server argued in a discrimination complaint against a Vancouver Milestones chain restaurant and its parent company, Cara Operations, in the wake of his firing in August.
While the manager maintains that Rey was popular among customers, he claimed the French server was “combative and aggressive” toward his co-workers.
But Rey alleges the manager’s accusations are a form of “discrimination against my culture,” which “tends to be more direct and expressive,” according to his complaint.
He also said he was fired because of his “direct, honest and professional personality,” which he developed during his time in the French hospitality industry.
