I would appreciate your thoughts on the following:
I filed a "hostile workplace due to racial slurs/discrimination" complaint with my employer after a supervisor called me and made derogatory comments about my family being mixed race, needing to “act white” etc and that my son needed to stop dressing "ghetto" when he was at our work family funtions (picnics etc). They investigated and found that his comments were personal and he was not acting in his role as a supervisor. Fine, I just wanted them to know what he did and who he was, we then met with an H/R person to “facilitate discussion and move forward in a positive environment”, during that meeting the supervisor became angry and said to me “I have contacted my lawyer and if you file another racial discrimination complaint against me again I will sue you for slander”. I told the H/R rep that even though my complaint was rejected he (the supervisor) could not threaten me with legal action to prevent me from filing a future complaint. Was his threat to sue me retaliation?
