Civil Rights Act – Human Resources Case Study
Consider the following scenario: Adam, an African American employee in your retail operation, has filed a complaint indicating that several white coworkers, including two supervisors, are harassing him because of his race. He alleges that they call him names such as “Sambo”, “Boy”, Afrikaner,” and “Zulu.” He also indicates that his supervisor refuses to allow him to work overtime, preferring to give overtime opportunities to white employees. Adam is a solid associate with no attendance issues, and he’s always very helpful to customers. After reviewing the overtime log, you discover that each of his coworkers has averaged five hours of overtime per week.
