Six former employees of the Min­ne­apolis Convention Center are suing, alleging the center discriminates based on age and race. Their lawsuit says minority and older workers were held to different standards than other employees.

One of the plaintiffs claimed super­visors “incessantly looked for mistakes” and created a hostile work environment in the process. The city of Minneapolis, which owns the convention center, denied all wrongdoing and emphasized its zero tolerance for any kind of discrimination.

Note: Discrimination may not be obvious to supervisors. Periodically, employers should evaluate perform­ance evaluations and promotion pat­terns to see if minorities or those over age 40 are left out. Could be you’re discriminating without knowing it.
