Our law firm filed a race discrimination charge against Shintech, of Freeport, Texas, on behalf of a Hispanic worker who was recently fired. [caption id="attachment_883" align="alignright" width="150"] photo: wbrz.com[/caption] The charge is currently under investigation at the EEOC. It alleges that our client was fired, after 13 years of employment, with no warning and with no valid cause, other than he was non-white. It is alleged that our client and another non-white worker were both fired by the company, solely because of their race, and over a minor incident. The charge alleges that white workers who violated company rules and engaged in serious infractions were not fired, yet our client and another man were fired for a far less serious matter. The EEOC will conduct their investigation where they will determine if there is sufficient cause to support the charge of race discrimination. __________________________________________________________________________________________________ About the author: Bruce Coane is an attorney who specializes in labor and employment law and immigration law, with offices in Florida and Texas.
