Question Details:I have since left this jo, but I once worked for an organization for about 6 months before I got a new manager. Once I began working at this job, store sales increased by 15% in 6 months. After the new manager arrived, everything changed. Not just the work, but the people who worked at the office. The manager said aloud in front of 4 employees "I am going to make this an all black store". With 1 month, I was the only Caucasian on the staff. In spite of the manager change, my results still improved. Without warning, I was fired from my position. I believe that this is discrimination. Is it?
Yes, white people can be discriminiated against based on race, same as minorities. The fact that you have multiple witnesses to the comment about making it an all black store is helpful. I would contact the Georgia association of employment lawyers. They have a Web site at nelaga.org.
