According to an EEOC complaint, Professional Building Systems has subjected African-American employees at its headquarters in Mount Gilead to harassment that included drawings depicting the workers and members of the Ku Klux Klan.
The complaint also alleges nooses have been displayed in the workplace of the company, which builds modular homes.
A manager at the Mount Gilead plant was singled out as the main perpetrator. The EEOC filed its racial discrimination suit on behalf of the North Carolina workers, as well as employees at a facility in Pennsylvania.
The suit seeks punitive and compensatory damages.
Note: We’re seeing more and more stories like this recently. Don’t let your company become an EEOC target. The law says every employee is entitled to a harassment-free workplace—and employers are responsible for ensuring that is the case.
