Madia Represents Employees Who Are Victims of Racial Discrimination
Racial discrimination at work includes more than just name calling. It also means that employers can’t treat employees differently because of their race, ethnicity, or national origin. It is illegal for employers to discriminate based on race when it comes to wages, promotions, discipline, suspensions, or terminations. Oftentimes, employers will claim that an employee was terminated for a reason other than race when, in fact, the real reason was racial discrimination. Madia has lots of experience dealing with this scenario. Once the employer has stated its supposed reason for termination, we take that reason and compare it to other employees in the same place as my client. Most of the time, other employees who still have their job are guilty of the same thing that the employer says motivated it to terminate our client. Once we’ve established that fact, employers usually want to settle the case rather than explain the real reason for discipline or termination of our client.
Hostile work environment based on race and subsequent retaliation results in $486,000 settlement.
We represented an African American line worker, “John,” who endured a hostile work environment based on his race for almost a year. His coworkers called him race based slurs, played pranks on him, and even punched him. When John complained about it to management, he was fired.
The case settled early in litigation for nearly half a million dollars.
