Vegas car dealers Shack-Findlay recently found themselves being sued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for racial discrimination and harassment. The suit is seeking backpay, reinstatement, implementation of new company policies and an permanent injunction against any further discrimination.
Two African-American men claim that while they were employed by the auto dealer they had to endure racial slurs, ethnic jokes and a hostile workplace because of their race. They also claim they were the victims of retaliation. The men haven’t worked for the company for more than three years.
An internal investigation by the company turned up nothing. The EEOC won’t say what information it has that led to the bringing of the suit.
Tennessee law protects workers against racial discrimination and harassment. No on should have to work in a hostile environment because of their race.
