Discrimination and anti-union claims pile up against Tesla

The technological innovations of Tesla Inc. might intrigue car buyers in New York, but the automaker's employees have been the source of multiple lawsuits. Three lawsuits originating from black workers accuse the company of racism. The newest lawsuit representing a man formerly employed at a West Coast factory is seeking class-action status. His court filings describe a workplace where supervisors and co-workers routinely used the N-word. The company allegedly ignored his formal written complaint about the racial slurs and then later fired the employee.

Using pattern evidence to prove discrimination

Unfortunately, many New York workers face discrimination at their jobs. There are multiple state and federal laws that prohibit employment discrimination based on race, national origin, color, sex, pregnancy, disability and religion. Proving discrimination may be difficult, but people might be able to use evidence of their employers' treatment of others to help prove that the actions against them were unlawful.

Discrimination in job interviews continues

One might think that racial discrimination in the workplace has improved over the last 25 years, but research shows this is not the case. African American and Latino job seekers in New York face significant challenges just trying to score an interview. Then they are blamed for lack of effort.

Discrimination at Google

Virtually everyone in America knows about Google. However, the office politics involved in running the successful company are less well-known. New York residents might like to know about what has been reported as a difficult environment in the company for those who are not white or male.

Similarly situated employees in a discrimination lawsuit

Race-based workplace discrimination is generally illegal under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but it occurs far too often in New York and around the country. For affected employees who choose to file a lawsuit, it may be appropriate to include a similarly situated employee when establishing a pattern of discrimination.
