I work for a franchise pizza company that is not corporately run. The private business owners employ a manager who on two occasions used racially demeaning epithets toward me. I called corporate and they could not help, when i contacted the owner, I let the owner know that i did not want retaliation from this incident, and they cut my hours nearly immediately. The owner told me there would be no backlash because i expressed my fear of coming forward, this does not seem to be the case now. The owner and i spoke at 11:21am on Nov 29, 2010, my manager called at 11:48 am same day from a blocked number to tell me not to come in on the 30th. I was told by the owner that a meeting would be held between us on the following day. Is there anything that i can do???I attended the meeting that was supposed to be held. When i arrived the owner was not there, he was at a hardware store. When we began, 20min late, mind you he informed me that plans had changed. No managers would be attending and we would just be talking . He informed me that these types of things happen and that is how people joke sometimes. He brushed off my concerns of retaliation, humiliation and the idea of me transferring to another store. i found it ironic that he brushed off my fears of retaliation and did not even realize i was taken off the schedule until i informed him then. He told me that he has taken care of the situation and it is done, and to be at work when i am scheduled again. No official report was taken. After some reflection i have contacted the EEOC. What other steps can i take??? This is unacceptable, how can this take place in 2010?
