Maryland residents get up and go to work every day. It is expected that when one heads into their place of employment, they will not be subjected to any form of employment discrimination. Unfortunately, even in today's society, workers are still subjected to hostile work environments and various forms of harassment.
Cal- Maine Foods, Inc is a national company that both produces and sells shell eggs. The employment discrimination took place in the Waelder, Texas branch of the company, just east of San Antonio. An employee of the company was subjected to repeated incidents of racial harassment while working as a computer systems controller for the company. The employee's supervisor used the "N" word and other racial slurs. In addition, the supervisor is charged with sexually harassing the employee in the form of inappropriate touching of the legs and buttocks. After the employee reported the harassment, he was fired in retaliation.
