I work at a dry cleaners in Louisiana. Our boss is a very racist and bigoted person. It has basically pushed all 3 of us to put in our 2 weeks notice. So for the past few days she has been in the process of taking applications. We have seen countless African Americans come through the door and a few Caucasians. Every single caucasian, without exception, has had an immediate but small sit down interview. Not one single African American has been given anything but the opportunity to fill out an application. It is immediately discarded but not until she makes fun of their "stupid names." We all want to report this illegal behavior. First, I want to make sure it is in fact illegal. I am 99% sure it is. Secondly, one of my coworkers is afraid that making a claim against her will somehow go on our record. I don't understand what she means but it is worth checking on. I don't want to find future employment hard to come by because I turned in someone who was discriminating. She thinks there will always be something on our background check that shows we reported a former employer but it will not have any details, so basically protecting the former employer but leaving us to now be discriminated against. Is this fear factual? Finally, what do we do? Who do I report such behavior to? The Better Business Bureau, which she so proudly claims to be a part of? Someone else?
