Case: Andrews Vs. Obayashi

Obayashi Construction hired James Andrews as a miner.  While Andrews worked daily under the earth creating the Atlanta sewer system, he was harassed by his supervisors and co-workers.  On an almost daily basis, Andrews’s supervisors and co-workers referred to him using severe racial slurs.  When Andrews complained to his boss, his boss told him “they were hanging you people in Alabama a few years ago – get over it.”  At his next shift, his boss fired him.  Andrews filed a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  While represented by Barrett & Farahany, the EEOC determined that James Andrews was retaliated against for his complaints of racial harassment.Then NAACP also became involved in the case.
Fox 5 News covered the story.
