The plaintiff Eleazar Andres used to work in one of the companies owned by the current Republican Presidential hopeful in New Jersey and was fired after complaining over homophobic harassment. His co-workers often offended him using homophobic slur, and supervisors, who often saw it, did not even try to do anything.

The former employee says the Trump National Golf Club violated the state’s anti-discrimination laws by fostering a hostile work environment based on sexual orientation, and is also suing well as discrimination based on sexual orientation. The lawsuit alleges that the club is responsible for “the acts constituting hostile work environment” and “sexual orientation harassment” as it had failed to “implement any preventative or remedial measures to protect against unlawful harassment”.He contends that managers had displayed “egregious” and “wilful indifference” to his complaints of abuse, alleging that they terminated his employment as a result of the complaints.
