He also wants more electric cars on the island and hopes to increase its fruit exports to Japan and other markets. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)

LANAI, Hawaii (KITV4) -- A Hawaii chef who used to work for Billionaire technology executive Larry Ellison’s Four Seasons Resort on Lanai is suing the tech titan’s company for violating the Whistleblowers’ Protection Act and public policy.

Public documents filed by attorneys for chef Jason Ganzagan against defendant Lanai Resorts LLC say that Ganzagan, who was a chef in multiple five-star restaurant kitchens on the Las Vegas strip, began working for the Four Seasons Resort Lanai as a Jr. Sous Chef in November 2019.
