Several current and former employees of the Charlotte office of the AAA Carolinas have filed racial discrimination claims against the company, claiming they were passed over for promotion in favor of less qualified white employees.
Most troubling would seem to be the experience of Eric Greene. According to the complaint, Greene initially complained about the discrimination and was demoted. He then filed an EEOC complaint charging the automotive services organization with discrimination.
Shortly after, he was denied a quarterly bonus. Greene filed a second charge and received a threatening letter laced with profanity and racial slurs. That’s when Greene contacted AAA’s attorney to meet to discuss the letter.
Later that day, his car was stolen. Police later found it, in Greene’s words, “burnt to a crisp.” The next day, Greene was fired.
A spokesman for AAA said the organization denied any wrongdoing.
