*A Domino’s pizza shop owner in New York will pay $150,000 for racially harassing employees.

The owner of two Domino’s franchises in Olean, New York, and Bradford, Pennsylvania, allegedly allowed two racist managers to regularly use the N-word and call Black male workers “boy”.  A lawsuit filed by one of the staffers alleges that complaints about the toxic and racist work environment were met with further harassment, according to the Olean Times Herald

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission found that one of the managers threatened a worker with a pair of scissors for complaining about being called racial slurs. 

The former owner of the Olean Domino’s franchise has been ordered to pay $150,000 as part of the racial harassment lawsuit.

Here’s more from the Olean Times Herald

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reported Thursday that Parris Pizza Company LLC agreed to a five-year consent decree to pay $150,000 to Black employees who were harassed and will send an apology letter to all former employees. If Parris Pizza opens any new businesses during the five-year period, it will institute robust anti-discrimination policies and provide training on the requirements of federal anti-discrimination laws for all employees.

“The law requires employers to thoroughly investigate complaints of racial harassment and take effective action to end a hostile work environment,” said Jeffrey Burstein, regional attorney for the EEOC’s New York District Office. 

“We are pleased Parris Pizza has agreed to provide relief to the Black employees who had to go to work every day and endure incessant use of racial slurs.”

EEOC New York Acting District Director Timothy Riera said the consent decree sends a clear message that employers cannot ignore racial harassment.

“The EEOC’s Buffalo Local Office will continue to be vigilant in its efforts to identify employers who fail to appropriately address racial harassment to ensure that such unlawful conduct stops,” he said.
