Smith. John

continued to get the worst shifts. In several occasions when John walked into an area that

Mr. Smith was in, talking to others; Smith would start whispering and giggling.

everyday Smith would embarrass John, complaining about his work, in front of other


Coworkers of John started to notice, and commenting to John about the situation;

Until one day John overheard Mr. Smith, talking to another supervisor, saying “I

can not understand why the old administration would hire a black guy or a Hispanic

guy, never the less a Black-Hispanic guy, when there is so many real Americans to hire”.

The other supervisor smiled and told Smith he should be careful, with those comments.

Smith comments “You will see, I will get John out of here”. John is upset, and does

Not know how to handle the situation; John is now scared, and does not dare to

confront his supervisor. John comments what he heard to a coworker, who advices him

to talk to the supervisor, in case he heard wrong, John talks to the supervisor, what appear

to be in private, but the other employee is near by, and overhears, Mr. Smith, telling John

“ yeah I said it you half-breed, and you can not do anything about it, because it is your

word against mine”, and then he walks away. John is in shock, and says to the coworker,

who heard everything that, he is just going to quit, to avoid problems. John’s coworker

b) The name, address, and telephone number of the respondent employer,

Employment agency, or union that is alleged to have discriminated, and number

c) A short description of the alleged violation (the event that caused the complaining

d) The date(s) of the alleged violation(s).
If the employee is a federal employee, he or she must look at the Federal sector Equal

will arrive, explaining that EEOC has indeed received the charge, and has filed. If the

needs more information, it may summit the charge for follow...
