Sports Apparel Manufacturer Sued for Racial Discrimination

September 6th, 2018

A lawsuit was recently filed in Florida district court by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Fanatics, Inc., a large sports apparel manufacturer. The suit alleges that a former employee, an African American man, was routinely subjected to racial discrimination during the time he worked at the company’s headquarters. The allegations include many derogatory and demeaning comments made by colleagues and superiors.

Although Fanatics, Inc. has stated that the company is committed to treating all employees fairly, and that they are taking the claims seriously, other employees claim that the workplace is racially divided, and treatment is based on race. A former employee claimed that minority employees are treated like uneducated slave labor.

Fanatics, Inc. is the world’s largest seller of licensed sports merchandise. The company’s operation style has changed the way fans shop for merchandise and apparel. This has led to partnerships across professional sports. Investors include the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB). The company also runs online shops for most of the major professional sports teams in the United States and has apparel licensing deals with the National Hockey League, the NFL, and more.
