A former executive assistant for the Diane & Guilford Glazer Foundation is suing her ex-employer, alleging she was wrongfully fired in 2021 for taking medical leave to deal with depression associated with a month-long bout with the coronavirus. Veronica Mendez’s Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit also names Guilford Glazer Properties Inc. as a defendant. The suit states that both the foundation and the company, each based in Beverly Hills, employed her “directly and indirectly.’’ The suit also alleges disability, race and religious discrimination —

Mendez is a Latina of the Mormon faith — as well as failure to accommodate and engage in the interactive process. Mendez seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages. 

A Diane & Guilford Glazer Foundation representative did not immediately reply to a request for comment on the suit brought Aug. 17. 

The foundation focuses on the “prosperity and safety of Israel and the vitality and enrichment of Jewish communities in Israel, Los Angeles, and throughout the world,’’ the group’s website states. The foundation is also engaged in funding medical research and advancements in Israel and the United States as well as humanitarian relief efforts globally, according to the website.
