Texas residents may be interested in a current employment law case involving social media company Facebook. Reports stated that two African-American employees in another state filed a federal lawsuit against the company after allegedly facing race discrimination on the job. One of the workers is a maintenance man, and the other man was a manager before leaving the company in October.
The maintenance worker asserts that he has been paid lower wages and has been given smaller raises than white workers in the same position. The former manager alleges that his leaving resulted from systemic racism and having many of his duties taken away. It is also claimed that a supervisor at the branch repeatedly made racist remarks. Though the men took complaints to the human resources department, they do not believe that the investigations into the incidents addressed their concerns.
