Beal Bank / CLMG — Discrimination
I had worked hard for this company for over 3 1/2 years. After your 3rd year you get a pretty good retention bonus. However, in the past year my department had been deteriorating. The work environment was extremely unprofessional and loud. The bank is a good old boy bank, privately owned. My manager was married to a high ranking official so she instilled fear in those that opposed her. My immediate co-worker suffered greatly at bullying from my manager and this included ridicule at times. Everyone saw this, but because of fear they just watched it happened. Others on the team enjoyed the good life, surfing the internet, personal calls and one even conducted his personal real estate business on the clock, yet my co-worker and I were persecuted. Eventually I could not handle the stress of the place and had to quit. Another employee on my floor had similar complaints and she quit and received unemployment benefits. However, I was denied. I want to know why they granted benefits to a white female in a predominately white bank, yet denied benefits to a hispanic male? She quit just like I did. This bank reeks in discriminatory practices. I was lied to when told that my HR complaints were taken seriously and actions taken. NOTHING was done and the discriminatory practices in my team continued.
