On Tuesday, July 10, the Florida Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-FL), along with the law firm of Morgan & Morgan, P.A, will hold a news conference in Orlando to announce the filing of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) discrimination charges by an Arab-American Muslim United Parcel Service ( UPS) employee who alleges that the company created a hostile work environment because of his religion and national origin, and then retaliated against him for opposing same.
Among other things, UPS management referred to this employee as a "monkey" because of his "skin tone," in writing. A large screenshot of this written conversation will be provided. UPS allegedly even went as far as monitoring this employee's bathroom breaks, followed him to the bathroom, and watching him urinate because they opposed his manner of urination in a bathroom stall rather than in a urinal. During the investigation of this matter, other former UPS employees of Middle-Eastern background have come forward and confirmed UPS's discriminatory culture condoned by management. The plaintiff and his attorneys will be present at the press conference.
