National Origin & Religious Discrimination
By rchangy, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
Martha is the supervisor of Hector and Saira at the Student Services Building. Hector speaks Spanish frequently in the workplace, and Saira has strong religious beliefs and commitments. Martha has received complaints from other employees about Hector and Saira's "unfair accomodations."
Martha has a meeting with Hector and Saira to inform them that the company has a "fair and traditional" workplace. Therefore Martha demands Hector to refrain from speaking Spanish in the workplace and Saira prioritize work over religious holidays and events. Is this request reasonable?
Confused and upset, Hector and Saira question Martha's reasoning. Martha is unable to provide any justifiable business reasons for these demands, and simply states that it's unfair to the other employees.
Hector and Saira discuss their meeting with Martha. Hector understands that his frequent use of Spanish doesn't inhibit his ability to perform his duties in any way. Saira also understands that Martha is obligated to try and make accommodations regarding her religious events and holidays. What can they do?
Hector and Saira decide to discuss things further with Martha before filing discrimination complaints. They explain to Martha that they're protected under federal law for their specific classifications (national origin and religion).
Martha realizes that she must attempt to accommodate for Hector and Saira, and that the accommodations made for them are not unfair to their co-workers. Hector and Saira are glad they resolved this matter without having to contact the Office for Inclusion and Equity.
