Thank you for your reply.
Now technically the company is not supposed to discriminate based on race, religion, creed, national origin
, etc. So one can attempt
to make a claim based on reverse discrimination
, i.e. that the company favors Russians over Americans.
However because it is a Russian company
, they can successfully defend the need for Russians over Americans and justify the switch from American to Russian employees by claiming (1) the need for bilingual employees, (2) employees who would have ease traveling back and forth between the two countries, and (3) ease of working with their Russian counterparts.
These (false?) justifications would bury the (actual?) discrimination
being a primary factor, thus I do not know how well this would play with the jury. So it would be a weak case.
Thanks again for not shooting the messenger, in advance.
