MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) – A bunch of Minneapolis males are accusing a St. Louis Park firm of employment discrimination.
Thursday, the Minnesota chapter of Council on American-Islamic Relations and Morris Regulation Group filed complaints with the Division of Human Rights and Equal Employment Alternative Fee in opposition to Medline Specific. The lads say they had been terminated on the identical day and changed with white staff. In addition they say they had been subjected to racial slurs, they had been instructed they couldn’t pray and weren’t allowed to make use of the corporate’s lavatory.
“We want Medline to step up and be accountable for what they’ve completed to a number of households,” stated Abdiweli Hashi, a plaintiff within the case. “I hope Minnesota Division of Human Rights and CAIR deliver mild to this illegal firm.”
The staff had been contractors paid to ship prescriptions.
In an e mail, counsel representing Medline Specific says the corporate “denies all allegations and intends to strenuously defend in opposition to what it genuinely believes are frivolous claims.”
In line with Medline Specific, six folks have filed administrative fees with the EEOC.
