Versace @drjilliantweiss v. Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (USA)


Attorney Jillian Weiss no longer represents Gina Versace in their lawsuit against Starwood Hotels for alleged discrimination based on gender identity. A spokesman for Starwood provided a statement about the lawsuit: “Starwood did not discriminate in any way against this former employee. In fact, the allegations of discrimination were investigated by the Florida Commission on Human Relations in 2013 and the agency found there was no reason to believe that any discrimination had occurred.”

The statement said Starwood “strongly believes in and maintains a culture of inclusiveness for our associates.We are very proud of our long-public commitment to the LGBT community and strive to be the industry benchmark for diversity and inclusion.”
