Former Teachers Sue Kanye West’s Donda Academy For Wrongful Termination

April 7, 2023 | By Kali Girl

According to ABC News, Kanye West’s Donda Academy is facing legal action as two former teachers claim they were unfairly fired without reason and only after bringing attention to the school’s alleged misconduct.

“No action was taken to remedy plaintiffs’ complaints regarding sanitation, health, safety or education standard pursuant to local and state law, which plaintiffs made throughout the entirety of their employment,” the lawsuit states.

Cecilia Hailey and her daughter, Chekarey Byers, had recently joined the Simi Valley institution as third and fifth-grade teachers, before their employment was abruptly terminated.

The duo filed a lawsuit on Thursday against West, along with the private school in California, alleging their dismissal was a result of raising concerns about the academy’s practices.

As per the lawsuit, both individuals were terminated in March following their complaints about “unlawful and unsafe practices,” including the absence of an adequate disciplinary system, a school nurse, janitorial staff, and security measures.

“No action was taken to remedy plaintiffs’ complaints regarding sanitation, health, safety or education standard pursuant to local and state law, which plaintiffs made throughout the entirety of their employment,” the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit also alleges that the plaintiffs’ paychecks were “untimely or inaccurate.” The lawsuit, filed on Thursday in the Los Angeles County Superior Court is seeking damages including unpaid wages, as well as damages related to emotional distress.

ABC News did not receive a response for comment from Donda Academy.
