The co-worker “frequently and regularly” used derogatory words to refer to African-Americans, Mexicans and Asians, the filing states.
On one occasion, about two weeks after Myers was hired, the co-worker allegedly said, “I ain't trying to be racist, but them black guys and Mexicans are lazy,” the lawsuit alleges.
Myers claims he complained to a supervisor on two occasions and was told to ignore the man.
Myers was terminated in September 2011. He said was never given a reason, adding in the filing he was never told of any problems or issues with his work performance and never disciplined.
