Shocking New Workplace Racial Harassment Case Filed

I just posted in Above The Law about another workplace racial harassment case.  I noted that “the N-word and nooses are still popular.  But, indeed, cases involving KKK hoods and other white supremacist slurs and epithets are — sure as ever — increasing.”

This ATL post is a sad coda to Amy’s recent post here about racial harassment.

My takeaway: “Employers must insure that these terrible actions do not occur — and that if a complaint is made, that it is expeditiously investigated and remedied.  And everyone in the workforce must refuse to tolerate this — or else you stand to be complicit.”
