As the world’s largest department store chain, American Apparel is one of the biggest retailers on the planet.
But in recent years, the company has been accused of violating anti-discrimination and anti-discriminatory laws, and in recent months, some of its suppliers, suppliers and suppliers of suppliers have protested at the company’s corporate headquarters.
American Apparel’s chief executive, Brian Cornell, resigned from the company in January.
The company’s chief financial officer, Dan Reimer, was fired in February after he was accused of sexual harassment by one of his employees.
A number of former employees have accused the company of using quotas, hiring for certain positions and pressuring them into signing confidentiality agreements.
The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Cornell, Reimer and others had been fired over the past several months.
In March, the Times reported that one former employee had accused the department store of hiring people for its stores with disabilities, and that the company was also allegedly violating labor laws.
The allegations came as a result of an investigation by the New York Attorney General, which was also investigating the company for using quotas and hiring for particular positions.
According to a Times report, the investigation found that at least three of the five former employees, two of whom were former employees of American Appearys parent company, American Eagle, told investigators that they were fired for expressing anti-Semitic or sexist opinions.
“They were fired after they were publicly and privately exposed as having said these things about American Appears suppliers,” said the report by The New York Daily News.
The Times also reported that a former American Apparels executive had accused Cornell of being too concerned about profits and not looking out for the employees, and complained about the company paying “a small percentage” of the profits from the department stores profits, which is less than 1%.
American Eagle also denied that it was responsible for any of the allegations.
In a statement, Cornell denied any wrongdoing, saying that the allegations were false and untrue, and calling them “a distraction from the important work we are doing at American Apparenlys corporate headquarters and to the millions of customers that we serve every day.
According to the Times, the allegations are “unfounded and untrue.”
The article also quoted a former US Treasury official who told the paper that the alleged discrimination was not limited to employees at American Eagle stores.
The article quoted an anonymous former employee of American Eagle who said that the firm retaliated against a former employee because he was perceived as a “racist” for speaking out against the company.
Another former employee who had been employed at American Emporer, a New York-based company, said that after she was fired from the store, she was asked to sign a confidentiality agreement in which she agreed not to talk about the allegations against her employer, The Times reported.
The allegations are one of several recent allegations against American Appariliys that have emerged in recent weeks.
Last week, the newspaper reported that the retailer was in negotiations to acquire the US-based clothing retailer Urban Outfitters.
While the acquisition of Urban Outfittings was announced, the New Jersey Attorney General’s office was investigating the allegations, as well as the company and its executives.
A spokesperson for the Attorney General did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
