Firm Obtains Settlement for Racial Discrimination Victims
Four men who worked for a large bank became the victims of a workplace bullying campaign against them. The men, who were all of East Asian descent, became the targets of colleagues after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, since one of the men was of the Muslim faith. The co-workers started bullying the plaintiffs, calling them racist names such as “terrorists”. The bank agreed to pay $1.8 million in damages.
