Eight City Workers Sue Over Alleged English-Only Policy

"In general, an 'English-only' rule will be justified by business necessity, and is more likely to pass legal scrutiny if it is needed for an employer to operate its business safely or efficiently," McAndrew said. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), in its Compliance Manual, offers the following examples of situations in which business necessity would justify an "English-only " rule: -- For communication with customers, co-workers, or supervisors who only speak English. -- In emergencies or other situations in which workers must speak a common language to promote safety. -- For cooperative work assignments in which the "English-only " rule is needed to promote efficiency. -- To enable a supervisor who only speaks English to monitor the performance of an employee whose job duties require communication with co-workers or customers. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and various state laws, "English-only ' policies cannot unfavorably affect only employees of a certain race or national origin. "Employers adopting an 'English-only' rule should ensure that all affected employees are notified about it, and about any disciplinary consequences for rule violations. Employers can provide notice in meetings, e-mails, or other written communication. It may be necessary for an employer to provide notice in English and the other languages spoken by employees, according to McAndrew. Employees for whom English is a second language may become targets for discrimination or harassment by their co-workers. "Employers have an obligation to protect those employees, and to ensure that they are not discriminated against or harassed based on their national origin. Employers should have anti-discriminatio n and anti-harassment policies in place that specifically provide protection based on national origin. Employers must take all reasonable steps to stop national origin discrimination and/or harassment when they become aware it has occurred," McAndrew said. Those who violate the law are often subject to costly penalties. For example: -- In April 2001, the EEOC reached a $2.4 million settlement against a Texas university where 18 Hispanic housekeepers allegedly were ordered to speak only English on the job. Some employees did not speak English, and all were forbidden to speak Spanish, even during breaks. -- In July 2003, a Colorado casino agreed to pay $1.5 million to settle a national origin discrimination suit with the EEOC on behalf of a class of Hispanic employees who alleged they were verbally harassed and subjected to "English-only " rules. The employees alleged that managers or other non-Hispanic employees would shout, "English! English!" at the Hispanic employees during encounters. -- In May 2006, the EEOC announced the settlement of a national origin discrimination suit against Highland Hospital of Rochester Inc. and Strong Health for $200,000 on behalf of a class of Hispanic employees. The employees, who worked in housekeeping, were subjected to "English-only " rules without any business justification. One manager reportedly told the employees, "This is America. Speak English." If your business has an "English-only " rule, or you are thinking about adopting one in your workplace, consult with counsel to develop a policy that will address your business needs while protecting you against possible discrimination claims.

NOT SO FOR WINNING THE CASE. IF YOU ARE IN AMERICA AND YOU HAVE A JOB THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE A LANGUAGE INTERPRETATION, SPEAK ENGLISH OR ELSE. It's not discrimination, it's INSUBORDINATION.  (May 17, 2011 | post #6)

I STUDY THE BIBLE TO SHOW MYSELF APPROVED OF GOD, NOT MAN. SODOM AND GROMORAH IS ANOTHER TERM FOR HOMOSEXUALITY. YOU MAY GO TO CHURCH, BUT YOU ARE WHAT JESUS REFERRED TO AS "WORKERS OF INIQUITY" STANDING IN THE CHURCHES AND IN THE STREETS PROCLAIMING GOD, BUT WHEN SOMEONE NEEDS A GLASS OF WATER (AND IN PARTICULAR IF THEY ARE BLACK - THAT'S ME SAYING THE BLACK THING) YOU WOULD NOT GIVE ONE DROP. HE WILL DENY YOU TO HIS FATHER. GET AWAY FROM ME YOU WORKER OF INIQUITY, YOU GET YOUR REWARD. YOU FOLLOW THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE, BUT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. YOU PROBABLY DO GO TO CHURCH EVERY CHANCE YOU GET, BUT GOING TO CHURCH DOES NOT GET YOU INTO THE BOOK OF LIFE. satan GOES TO CHURCH TOO! he CAN QUOTE THE SCRIPTURES AS HE DID TO JESUS. SORRY DUDE, YOU GET YOUR REWARD FOR SOUNDING OFF YOUR CHURCH DEEDS TO MAN. TRY TO LOVE YOUR BROTHER AS YOU LOVE YOURSELF, AND THEN YOU GET MY ATTENTION. I DON'T DOUBT THAT YOU PRACTICE RELIGION. RELIGION IS NOT WHAT GETS YOU IN THE BOOK OF LIFE. SO DOES THE POPE, BUT THEY ARE HOMOSEXUALS AND PHEDOPHILES IN THE CONGREGATION. HMMMM YOU MAY NEED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW YOU GO TO CHURCH, BUT YOU DARN SURE HAVE A HARDER TIME CONVINCING FOLKS, BY YOUR DEEDS.  (May 17, 2011 | post #51)

What Caused Fire that Destroyed a City Home?

Stop the drama, this bigsingle did not write the comment. Every time I see something you write and use my moniker name, it sounds more dumb. THERE ARE NOT POOR BLACKS THAT NEED TO GET AHEAD AT THE STEPPING STONE OF WHITES, THEY DO ON THEIR OWN ACCORD OR NOT. THAT'S WHAT I WOULD HAVE SAID MF. OH BY THE WAY, WITH MY THREE MASTER DEGREES AND KEYBOARD ABILITY, YOU'LL HAVE to step your typo's and spelling up a bit. You are to coward to speak on your own behalf.  (May 16, 2011 | post #5)

No, I mean homosexuality. None the less,that's my point. NO MAN IS GREATER THAN ANY OTHER, INCLUDING ME. With that said. Your sins are of your flesh and you must repent for yours. I have mine. You call it bible thumper. It's funny how you are afraid to read the written account of world history and are willing to negate it. Just because YOU PERSONALLY have your own interpretation, of the record, makes it no less effective and correct and the history is not open to your interpretation.  (May 16, 2011 | post #49)
