The 4th nominee for the “Worst Employer of 2022” is … the WTF racist


I can't do these truly awful allegations of systemic racism, racist harassment, and retaliation any more justice than the actual allegations from the lawsuit that the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing just filed against Tesla.

They are the worst allegations of workplace racism I've ever encountered. They start with claims of a segregated workplace with the Black section referred to as the "porch monkey station," the "slaveship," and the "plantation," and go downhill from there to include daily utterances of every kind of racist slur (including the n-word, "porch monkey," and "coon") 50 - 100 times per day.

The 3rd nominee for the “Worst Employer of 2022” is … the cancerous employment canceler


"Focus on your health," is a nice sentiment for an employer to share with an employee who is awaiting the results of cancer testing. Coupled with a termination letter on the eve of the employee returning to work from said testing? That will earn you a nomination for 2022's Worst Employer.

The EEOC has the details in this news release.

The 2nd nominee for the “Worst Employer of 2022” is … the claim-filing clinic


Suppose you have a group of unhappy employees. They don't like their working conditions. They don't like their pay. They generally want to work somewhere else. When they give you their notice, do you:

(a) Let them walk. 
(b) Engage them to see what will entice them to say.
(c) Sue them for an injunction to stop them from leaving.

If you chose (c) you are ThedaCare, a Wisconsin healthcare system. You are also the 2nd nominee for the Worst Employer of 2022.
