Ex-Versace Employee Claims Company Uses Racist 'Code' Used for Black Customers

Ex-Versace Employee Claims Company Uses Racist 'Code' Used for Black Customers
- A former Versace employee is suing the luxury company for racial discrimination and unfair business practices, claiming the retailer uses a secret “code” to alert staff and security whenever a black customer enters a store. Christopher Sampiro, 23, alleges that he was fired from one of Versace’s outlets stores in the Bay Area in October for telling his manager that he was African-American, after only two weeks on the job. Sampiro also says that during his employee training, he was asked if he knew about the “D410 Code”– the color code for all black clothing at Versace.
