Over at Above the Law, Richard B. Cohen corrals a flock of work-place discrimination and harassment cases. It’s worse than I could have imagined.
Here’s a bit; follow the link for the herd.
One Washington State company sued by the EEOC agreed to pay $165,000 to settle a case in which it was alleged that the manager and assistant managers subjected the only black employee to slurs such as “spook,” “boy,” and “King Kong,” and told him that he had the “face of a janitor.”
And there were death threats. Death threats! In the workplace!
An assistant manager allegedly told him, “We will hang you. We will seriously lynch you if you call in again this week.” And another asked him if he was “ready to commit suicide,” and even offered him “assistance” if he wanted to do it.
Yes — he was fired.
