John identifies as a Hispanic employee in a
private sector organization. He is regularly called an “idiot” by his
supervisor. The supervisor has hardly ever called non-Hispanic employees
derogatory names. Finally, the supervisor starts calling John an
inflammatory name that is known to be derogatory to Hispanics. John now
finds his work environment intolerable though his supervisor has no
intention to demote or fire John for any reason. John, however, wants to
file a discrimination complaint against his employer. He went to his HR
department first, but was dissatisfied with their lack of help.
Prepare a 700- to
1,050-word paper written in the third person voice in which you analyze
and explain the discrimination complaint and civil litigation process as
it would potentially apply to John and his employer.
- What are the elements of a hostile work environment harassment claim?
- Can John potentially satisfy the elements of a hostile work environment harassment claim?

Identify whether John can
make a prima facie case of hostile work environment by identifying the
elements required to bring a cause of action for discrimination.
Explain how the complaint
process begins with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
and proceeds with a right-to-sue letter through the civil litigation
process from the state level up to the U. S. Supreme Court.
