A lawsuit filed Wednesday by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claims Arab and Muslim employees at the Tinley Park car dealer were harassed and called offensive names, Sun-Times Media reports.
Rizza Cadillac faces a U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission lawsuit that claims Arab and Muslim employees were harassed and called offensive names, according to a Sun-Times Media report.
The lawsuit, which was filed Wednesday, Sept. 18, states that three dealership employees filed complaints with the EEOC, according to the report. In the complaints, the employees claim they were called "terrorists" and other slurs, the report stated, adding that Rizza managers also insulted the Qur'an.
The harassment began in January of 2007, and employees said the car dealer ownership did not act on their complaints, the report stated. In July of 2012, the EEOC intervened and had talks with the Tinley Park-based dealership, which broke down earlier this year, the report added.
