Embassy Suits Complaint - Discrimination - server
TAMPA, FLORIDA -- I lost My job to spanish speaking non-American 2 days after I trained them and the reason they gave me was I had poor job performance so I wrote them this letter below and went back and got referance/names and there phone number of all the people I work with and they even said it was wrong of them and would say so if asked.
I Would like to speak with someone about an issue I am having with my former place of employment. I was fired on Jan 23, 2007. I was told that it was because poor job preformance but I am sure that I was discriminated against by my supervisor. I was working at Embassy Suites Downtown Tampa. I am african american and my supervisor was Dominican. She constantly put me down and talked to me like an idiot. She said I had a problem because I did not speak Spanish and that if I wanted to succeed in my job I should learn. I personally trained six other fellow employees and one supervisor flawlessly. It was not a part of my job to do so, I did it because she said I had to and she was of no assistance to me. I was never wrote up or reprimanded for any type of behavior. I am also diabled based on an impaired mental capacity. Even with the disability I preformed my job flawlessly. This can be proven by statements made from other supervisors, managers, customers and employees. I am not the only employee that this has happened to and all the other employees as well as myself has been replaced with a hispanic workers and many time this persons english language skills and job preformance was very poor even after a period of time on the job. I enjoyed my job. I would like my job back or to seek restitution if I cannot have my job back. I have a family to support and my disability check does not cover all exspenses. I feel deeply hurt and upset that this has happened to me. There are a few other points I would like to make but I can wait until I speak to someone. If you can be of assistance or lead me in the right direstion I would be thankful.
