Denver-based Frontier Airlines says it disciplined two employees who harassed a black co-worker with a noose at Denver International Airport.
Juan Sequeira, with help from a fellow employee, allegedly made the noose and showed it to the co-worker in the break room, saying, “Are you ready?” Sequeira also was cited for a “bias-motivated crime” by Denver police.
Frontier spokesman Steve Snyder did not specify what discipline the airline imposed, but said the airline was “stepping up” its diversity training.
Note: Remind employees periodically of their responsibilities under your company’s anti-discrimination policies. Policies merely posted on the wall can be forgotten over time.
