The EEOC has filed suit against Papé Material Handling in Fresno, alleging the company systematically discriminates against Hispanic employees. The lawsuit claims Papé permits ongoing pervasive harassment that includes ethnic slurs and mocking of employees’ accents.

The EEOC says the company, which sells and rents warehouse equipment such as forklifts, failed to investigate when employees lodged complaints, forcing them to quit rather than face more harassment.

The EEOC lawsuit claims violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and seeks monetary damages for the employees, as well as injunctive relief intended to prevent and correct any future discrimination.

Note: Employers must investigate complaints of harassment of any kind. Failure to do so is a smoking gun in court. Investigations are much cheaper than litigation.

I was sexually harassed at the post office and was let go when I reported it. Can anyone help me with this?
