A federal agency, tasked with ferreting out employment discrimination, recently demonstrated that it has a poor understanding of the employment relationship, and little knowledge of what it is to be an American.
Earlier this month the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a lawsuit alleging that a San Diego Albertson’s supermarket engaged in discriminatory practices for enforcing its “English only” rule on employees.
“Targeting a particular language for censorship is often synonymous with targeting a particular national origin, which is both illegal and highly destructive to workplace morale and productivity,” according to the EEOC.
Six years ago the EEOC won a lawsuit over Delano Regional Medical Center’s own “English only” rule, but it was based on how the California-based facility enforced it. It targeted only Filipino employees.
“Rather than enforcing the policy with all staff, the EEOC asserted that solely Filipino-American staff was disciplined for alleged infractions and constantly monitored for enforcement of the policy,” the agency said. “Non-Filipino staff who routinely spoke languages other than English — such as Spanish — on the job were not disciplined or harassed as a result.”
