JUSTICE FOR WORK DISCRIMINATION OF RACE AND NATIONAL ORIGIN

Background: Our client, originally from Ghana, was employed in a retail position in upstate New York. Her manager, an immigrant from Vietnam, consistently made racially charged comments during her time at the job. Repeatedly stating negative stereotypes about West Africans, the manager even expressed regret in hiring our client. After filing a complaint with Human Resources, our client faced retaliation, and shortly thereafter, she was terminated on grounds of "chronic tardiness."


Outcome: We argued that our client was being subjected to discrimination based on her race and national origin, and was fired in retaliation for complaining about the discrimination. We were able to recover approximately $36,000 for her.

Result:

$36,000
