Law360, New York (September 29, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT) -- U-Haul International Inc. on Wednesday was hit with a workplace discrimination suit in Tennessee, in which the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claims the company allowed supervisors to verbally harass and wrongly terminate a class of employees based on their race.
The suit claims that from 2007 to 2008, black employees at a Memphis, Tenn., U-Haul facility were regularly subject to racial epithets, degrading jokes and unfair treatment from a supervisor, Patrick Chapman, in violation of the Civil Rights Act.
