Eleven women are suing Shoney’s alleging sexual discrimination, accusing senior executives at the family-friendly chain of ignoring claims that four Nashville-area managers had groped and harassed female employees and waged a campaign to rid the company of older female workers.

The women, who include two teenagers hired as cashiers and several restaurant supervisors, say their bosses at Shoney’s restaurants in Hendersonville and Franklin, Ky., frequently made lewd comments, and propositioned and fondled them and other female employees.

Their treatment came amid a campaign to drive off older, less-attractive female workers, the women say in a series of lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court. They say that campaign fostered a climate in which explicit sexual harassment of employees by male and some female managers was tolerated. Meanwhile, several women in their 30s and 40s either were demoted or fired.

The campaign was devised by a vice president in Shoney’s Nashville headquarters and implemented by a half-dozen men and women midlevel executives working in Middle Tennessee and South Central Kentucky, the suits say.

A former African-American crewman who once worked on NASCAR ‘s Winston Cup circuit sued the governing body of the U.S. stock car series on Tuesday for race discrimination and breach of contract. David Scott, who worked as a motorcoach driver to one of the racing teams, claimed NASCAR executives deceived him and did not fulfill promises of a job following a well-publicized 1999 racial incident involving white motorcoach drivers, according to the complaint filed in Manhattan federal court that seeks unspecified damages.
