Retail giant Target recently shelled out $775,000 to settle an EEOC lawsuit over the treatment of 13 black workers at its Springfield store.

The employees sued for race discrimination and retaliation, claiming a white store manager berated them.

When one of the black employees complained, he said the company retaliated against him. As a result, he suffered health problems and resigned. The EEOC charged that the store forced his resignation, amounting to constructive discharge.

Tip: Don’t wait for employees to file charges against their supervisors. Pull abusive managers aside and read them the riot act. It’s your job to make sure all employees are treated with respect.
