New Racial Discrimination Lawsuit Against Fox News Emerges

April 26th, 2017

On Tuesday, a new racial discrimination lawsuit against Fox News emerged. Just days after host Bill O’Reilly was ousted by the network for sexual harassment charges, new allegations of racial discrimination at the network have arisen. Eleven current and former Fox News employees filed a class-action lawsuit in New York against the network. The filing originated from a complaint filed in March by two African-American women who worked in Fox’s payroll department. As contended in the lawsuit, the company’s comptroller engaged in racist behavior and made racist comments while senior executives ignored it. In a separate lawsuit, a group of African-American employees apparently repeatedly complained about the racial discrimination, but action was not taken against it, and the behavior did not stop. They allege that a Fox lawyer and a human resources executive were alerted to the complaints but informed the employees that nothing could be done to stop it. The comptroller, who engaged in other racially contentious acts like mocking African-American employees starting as far back as 2008, was fired in February.

Facing racial discrimination in a workplace can create a toxic climate that adversely affects all employees involved and present during the derogatory activity, and reduces morale so low that employees cannot perform to the best of their abilities and may even fear for their safety. No employee deserves such poor treatment due to physical characteristics or the stereotypes tainting an ethnic or racial group.
