I am a Production Supervisor and I am African American Male age 41. Over the past 4 years there have been serveral instances involving racial statment direct to my employees and other minorities at my work place. Please see the examples below and advise if it warrants legal action. (the below events happned from 2009 thru 2013)
An employee Called one of my employees a Sand ni**er in front of one of my African American employees that was a temp. I took the issue to HR and my manager at the time pulled me to the side with he plant manager and they basically told me that the temp did not have rights and would have to take it up with the the Temp Agency
. Later that month the employee that made the statement was promoted to a lead postion.(He also admitted to saying it)
About a month later a Temp (White Woman) claimed that a Hispanic employee sexually harrassed her and he was Fired.
We had a Quality Manager tell one of the Afican American employees that she looked like a Aunt Jamima because she was wearing a Bandana. (He admitted to saying it and was demoted to a Quality ENGR but was bragging to everyone that he keep his same pay. The Quality Manger is also good friends with the Plant manager and they have pictures on Facebook of them hanging out together.
My Wife who is Caucasian was helping one of the Employees at work and when they were done he todl her that was mighty white of you. She went to HR and they did not do anything and told her that they were going to have deversity tranning. (Which did not take place.)
I had a Hispanic employee tell me that employee had called him a dirty mexican and we reported to HR. The employee admitted to saying it and nothing happened. The same employee was called the same thing and this time he threw a hammer at the employee that said it and was fired because this employee denied saying it.
We had a temp(Caucasian) ask one of the full time employees(African American) if he knew what a Porch Monkey was? This was reported and the Temp is still working at the company.
I had an employee tell me that one of the employees that work for me said I was working him like a ni**er and I reported it and the employee denied it and HR told me that that thought he said it but they could not do anything about it.
Within the last year we have had two Caucasian Male Supervisor that were married admit to having Affairs with employees that worked for them. Neither of which were fired but we had a Female Supervisor that was having an affair get fired becuase one of the operator took a video of her and the employee together during working hours.
I also have had serveral instances were I was passed over for jobs that were given to employees that coached a Managers Daughter in sports or they both were preiously employed at the same place. Jobs were not posted ,positions were just created and assigned to the employees.
