Spanish River High School’s Assistant Principal allegedly discriminated against a custodian, according to a lawsuit.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — An unnamed assistant principal at Spanish River High School in Boca Raton is accused of discriminating against an injured school custodian. The custodian just filed a lawsuit against the Palm Beach County School District in circuit court.

According to the lawsuit, which you can read in its entirety below (click here if you are reading in a news app), Plaintiff Jean Dorsainvil was injured and underwent surgery. When he returned to his custodial job, the unnamed assistant principal allegedly discriminated against Dorsainvil by reassigning him to a different shift that would be nearly impossible for him to work due to his surgery.

From the suit:

“On July 26, 2019, Plaintiff had neck surgery and was to be out for a month. When returned to work on August 26, 2019, he was able to work but was informed he would be in pain for at least the next 2-3 months. Just a few weeks later, on September 17, 2019, the assistant principal suddenly asked Plaintiff if he can start working during the night shift, which involve more physical labor. Plaintiff could not do this as a result of his surgery and stated such. In response, the assistant principal removed Plaintiff from the schedule altogether, effectively ending his employment.”

Dorsainvil’s attorneys allege that the “unlawful discriminatory practices by the Defendant and its agents … violates the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992.”

Spanish River High School seems to attract legal attention — it’s the school where now fired principal William Latson said it wasn’t for him to decide whether the Holocaust happened or not. The Palm Beach County School Board technically “re-fired” Latson earlier this month for that comment.
