SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) – A lawsuit filed by two Black women who work for the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department accuses their employer ordering them to be silent while at work in retaliation for claims of racial discrimination.
“I was not to talk to anyone in our office,” said Kim Lee, a 23-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department. “‘Come to work, do your job, and just leave,’” she said she was told by her supervisor.
Lee and Danielle Dillard, who has been with the department for 19 years, both work in the Warrants Division.
According to their lawsuit, their supervisors gave both women letters called ‘cease and desist orders’ in March of 2019, which said the women could “not communicate with employees in the unit.”
