Share

Kleek Just when we were celebrating the launch of Universal Music Group’s digital distribution music service called The Kleek, we are reminded to stay watchful.
(AllHipHop News) While most Americans are in favor of legalizing marijauana, one 41 year old African American security guard is taking issue. The unnamed security guard is suing Universal Music Group-owned Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG), Universal Protection Services and a variety of other parties for “alleged labor violations, including a hostile work environment” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The unnamed woman worked for Universal Protection Services at UMPG’s complex in Santa Monica, CA and in the lawsuit details the unprofessionally cavalier attitude UMPG and Universal Protection Services exhibited towards marijuana use in the office. In the lawsuit, she alleges her superiors would ignore her written complaint and she was on numerous occasions informed when to “expect blazers” which is a term used to refer to marijuana smokers. At one point she recalls ”artists and high-profile celebrities began visiting the premises with drugs in hand and oftentimes offering drugs to Plaintiff, which she refused,” according to the lawsuit . . .”

All Hip-hop has the full story.
