Lexington, KY (PRWEB) May 19, 2014

Morgan & Morgan, P.A. is announcing the filing of a federal discrimination lawsuit in Lexington, Kentucky on behalf of Easa Shadeh against his former employer, Glenn Auto Mall.

In his complaint, Mr. Shadeh, a United States citizen, alleges that he was discriminated against and ultimately fired because he is Arabic. During his employment, according to court documents, Mr. Shadeh alleges that he was referred to as a, “camel jockey,” subjected to humiliating ethnic jokes, and informed by his coworkers that Arabs are, “the new n------.”

According to court records, in April 2013, shortly after the Boston Marathon Bombing, another manager at Glenn Auto Mall, Charles Bush, came to work wearing, “a turban, fake bomb vest, and backpack and pretended to make bombs near a prayer rug,” at his work station. According to court documents, Mr. Bush looked at Mr. Shadeh and said, in reference to the bombing, it was, “your people,” who did this. The FBI later came to Glenn Auto Mall to allegedly investigate a potential hate crime, court documents show.

Glenn did not fire Mr. Bush for this, court records continue, but instead transferred him to another building and fired Mr. Shadeh a few weeks later. Court records show Mr. Bush was then transferred back to his original building after Mr. Shadeh’s employment was terminated. Glenn Auto Mall allegedly fired Mr. Shadeh due to his, “ineffectiveness as a manager,” according to court documents, where another employee submitted a finance application with false information. Incredibly, court records indicate that the actual employee who submitted that fabricated finance application was not fired, only Mr. Shadeh. Days later, court records show, Mr. Bush was transferred back.
