The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity settled a lawsuit in which the EEOC had alleged that the employer created such a racially hostile work environment that the employee was forced the quit. The EEOC’s lawsuit alleged that the general manager of the company discriminated against one of its African American employees by calling him “Black boy,” “the Black boy,” and “little Black guy.” The lawsuit further alleged that the manager regularly used the “n” word in front of this employee. On one occasion, a supervisor repeatedly told this employee that he was a “bitch as n*****,” and he said it in front of both the manager and other employees. In response, the company sent the African American employee home for the day instead of the supervisor. The work environment reached such a level of racial hostility that the employee resigned. This alleged conduct is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of a person’s race. See EEOC v. Don's Specialty Meats, Inc., No. 6:21-cv-03421 (W.D. La.).
