david-burke-restaurants-0614.jpgA former employee has filed a lawsuit against NYC chef/restaurateur David Burke, claiming that management at the David Burke Restaurant Group discriminates against Muslim workers. In the federal suit, Ibrahima Kaba claims he was forced to work on a day reserved for religious observance, and that fellow Muslims are "retaliated against if they seek the right to exercise their religion." A lawyer representing Burke stated the company abides by labor laws. [NYDN] [Photo]
