Racist Boss Costs Marjam $500K

Marjam Supply Company, which runs a chain of 15 building materials stores, agreed to pay $495,000 in back pay and compensatory damages to five former employees in order to settle a race discrimination suit that was filed by the EEOC.

A Marjam toxic supervisor and several other coworkers subjected the five African American employees to a hostile work environment, repeatedly calling one of the workers the N-word, discussing the Ku Klux Klan, and talking about burning crosses in front of the African American employees.  One of the employees was fired for complaining about the abusive behavior.
