A contribution shared by Sephora (@sephora) on March 27, 2018 at 9:22 am PDT After the date in the termination letter, Sephora expected OCC to rebre the remaining products (i.e. the return to vendor or RTV clause) and for Sephora to refund the unsold product. OCC then asserted in the complaint that it had entered into an oral agreement with Sephora to amend the original contract in two ways: first, that Sephora would become OCC`s exclusive stationary retailer, understanding that it would place enough orders to compensate for those that OCC would have to deny to other retailers. In the complaint, OCC claimed that Sephora broke these oral agreements by not placing more orders and not helping to pay for establishments. Sephora argued that this was a contentious issue, given that the original contract preferred that the contract could only be amended in writing and that, therefore, the action should be dismissed. A bumpy start and a few missteps led Sephora to terminate the supplier agreement with OCC with effect from April 2015 and declare that they would sell all products in stock as well as future products due for pending orders. OCC claimed that they were sticking to oral amendments to the agreement, which changed schedules and investments, and that Sephora ultimately did not maintain the end of those agreements. Unfortunately, none of this was written down and the court allowed Sephora to unload the remaining OCC products at the lowest price. While the brand briefly went on, there are widely held theories that the torture led to its definitive end. According to the Times, not only were they not allowed to speak Spanish, but “their superiors imitated their accents and mocked their culture,” they say, and when they complained about it, they suffered even more.” The Times also reported that Sephora made a statement through a spokeswoman saying, “Sephora does not tolerate discrimination of any kind.” The statement added: “In addition, we have never had and have never had a `uniquely English` rule in our workplace.” There is a huge force in understanding.
