Everyone has the right to be fairly treated in their workplace. For a business to be successful, it requires the cooperation of its employees and this is best secured by treating them correctly.

Some have their employment terminated altogether, either in retaliation for a complaint, or as a discriminatory action.

In California, a firefighter has seen his racial discrimination suit reinstated by a federal court.
