Even the sweetest place on earth can have difficulties in the workplace. A former employee who was a sales representative for Hershey believes that she was the victim of race discrimination. The black Texas rep worked for the company for over eight years until she allegedly lost her job to a white female employee.
She claims that her boss told her the reason for her termination was because she had entered false information regarding how long she was spending on building displays and stocking in stores. According to her lawsuit, her superior -- who is also black -- told the other black employees -- in particular -- how to enter time incorrectly into the system. She asserts that he also said that black employees were going to be targeted to be fired because of their race.
