The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) has filed suit against a Sarasota, Florida, OfficeMax alleging discriminatory employment practices. The government lawsuit alleges that a Hispanic sales associate was fired in 2009 after complaining of racial discrimination. According to the lawsuit, the employee was later rehired but then the manager retaliated against the employee by engaging in a practice of unwarranted disciplinary actions and other activities causing the employee to quit.
Regardless of the merits of the case, this will take up a considerable amount of time, energy and expense to defend.
As strategic Orlando, Florida, Human Resources consultants and business advisors we take the tack that an ounce of management training is worth a pound of management cure.
Sarasota is close to Central Florida. Think about it.
