Former Contractor alleges USA Cricket of Racial Discrimination, takes the Board to Court

A fresh lawsuit filed at the federal court from an ex-contract employee has rocked USA Cricket again. In the lawsuit, Krik Greaves has sought USD 2 Million from the Board on the grounds of “racial discrimination” in employment services.

Greaves was appointed as the Operations Manager (contract) in March 2021 on a four-month probationary period with a salary of USD 5,000 per month which increased by another 1500 by the time he was terminated in the first week of April 2022. Greaves has alleged a “toxic work environment, unfair employment practices, wage disparity, and discrimination” in his lawsuit and further alleges that a budget set aside for his full-time conversion was used to increase an offer for a white employee.

Greaves further claimed that Director of Cricket Operations, Richard Dane had sent him a termination letter which was ‘pursuant’ to the decision of the Cricket Committee. Howveer, Greaves stated that he received an email from Srini Salver, a member of the cricket committee, which stated “your termination was never recommended by the Cricket Committee in any board meeting but was instead discussed during a conversation about budgets.”

However, USA Cricket has denied all the allegations levied by Greaves & is ready for a legal battle. “USA Cricket is aware of various details of a lawsuit being brought by a former contractor against USA Cricket. The individual is one of a number of contractors previously engaged by USA Cricket whose contracts were recently not renewed. All allegations in the lawsuit are entirely false and without merit, and USA Cricket denies and will aggressively defend against them. The matter is currently in the hands of USA Cricket’s lawyers. We look forward to the case being dismissed in due course and will not be making any further comment at this time,” said a USA Cricket spokesperson.
